Why a 24/7 urgent care facility?
Most work-related injuries are minor, yet the law requires 'immediate medical attention', so this means a whole lot of ankle sprains and minor lacerations unnecessarily go to the ER every day! What's the solution?
Have you ever had that 'killer sore throat', keeping you awake at 2am, but the only place that's open is the ER, and yet you don't have an emergency? What's the solution?
Working on assembling that gift for the kids at 11pm and you accidentally cut your finger and it needs stitches? So if you wait until morning, they might say you waited to too long. And if you go to the ER, they'll make you wait in the waiting room until 5am. What's the solution?
Here's a tongue-in-cheek one: you're seeking medical attention for you or your kids, but you don't want to sit in the ER waiting room for hours because it's full of drug-seekers (because that's often the only place they can get their narcotics now). What's the solution, day or night?
You have a crying sick baby, and your older kids have school tomorrow. It's 1am. Do you really have to wake everyone up and go sit in an ER waiting room for 3 hours, meaning everyone in the family has a crappy day tomorrow? What's the solution?
It's the 21st century guys: how would you feel if we had a 24/7 urgent care in our state? Could this be the solution?
Affordable medical care, where you need it and when you need it, has been a defining goal for STLUrgentCares.com since they first opened in March 2009.
Our system is designed to make healthcare affordable, and to provide another, more logical, less expensive and faster option, than the emergency room. So going 24/7 just seemed like a logical next step.
Because we offer both urgent care and primary care services, many of our patients seek to establishe a medical relationship with a professional and dedicated provider and our wonderful staff. Our focus is to make employees feel like they're part of a happy family, and this gets passed onto our patients, who should never feel let down.
You will be taking a proactive stance to promote your own health and well-being. You can become an established patient with 4 locations to serve you and we will soon offer 24/7 urgent care at our Downtown location. Even if you live in west county, the choice between sitting in an ER waiting room for 5 or 6 hours, compared with getting to our 24/7 Downtown location in under 35 minutes, is a no-brainer. Furthermore, your copay is going to be a fraction of the ER copay, and you'll be in and out in a much shorter time.
This truly is changing the landscape in the delivery of acute care in St. Louis.
We strive to address the need for affordable healthcare not only for individuals, but also for employers that wish to offer their employees better access to preventative and curative healthcare, but without the big price tags they're used to at the big hospital systems.
