Meeting a Growing Need for After-Hours Care

Overview

With the ever-increasing time it takes to be seen in an emergency room, Franciscan ExpressCare provides patients and families with non-life threatening cases to be seen and diagnosed by a healthcare provider in a timely manner. Franciscan Health has identified a need in the communities we serve and offer an alternative choice to meet these healthcare needs.

Franciscan ExpressCare has convenient evening and weekend hours. No appointment needed - just walk in. If you cannot get in to see your family physician or primary care provider for minor injuries and illnesses, our physicians are ready to care for you and will refer you back to your doctor if follow-up care is needed.

Urgent Care vs. the ER

If you have a serious condition – stroke, heart attack, severe bleeding, head injury or other major trauma – go straight to the nearest emergency room. Don’t take a chance with anything life-threatening. The emergency room is the best place for these and other critical conditions:

  • Chest pain
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Severe bleeding or head trauma
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Sudden loss of vision or blurred vision
  • Serious or severe injuries, digit or extremity amputation
  • Burns or electrical shock
  • Altered mental status
  • Seizure
  • Vaginal bleeding during pregnancy
