The Differences Between an Urgent Care and the ER

Urgent care at Sun City Emergency Room in El PasoMany people in El Paso who need medical care are uncertain of where to go. It can be easy to become confused about the differences between urgent care centers and freestanding emergency rooms. The confusion is understandable, but the differences are profound.  An urgent care center provides care for people who can’t get in to see a doctor, but the care it provides may be more limited than what Sun City Emergency Room offers. A freestanding ER like Sun City Emergency Room, on the other hand, offers all the emergency services a traditional ER does without the hospital hassle. We provide comprehensive medical care to people in El Paso who are having a medical emergency, and can do more for patients than an urgent care center can.
