Urgent Care Centres

Programs that provide treatment services for people who have medical conditions that require urgent treatment but not a visit to a hospital emergency department. Many of these programs are set up as distinct clinics within hospitals and can administer treatment for acute medical conditions including heart attacks, minor day surgery procedures, fractures and lacerations, while also providing access to X-ray and other diagnostic equipment. Although they are generally open for extended hours, most urgent care centres do not operate on a 24/7 basis.
