How is Care Essentials different from emergency care?

Care Essentials offers accessible, convenient care for minor health care needs. It does not offer specialty care or emergency care.

Care Essentials

  • Cold, cough and sinus symptoms
  • Fever, moderate vomiting
  • Asthma or allergies
  • Minor wounds, rashes, sprains, and strains

Emergency Care

  • Chest pain or pressure
  • Severe stomach pain that comes on suddenly
  • Severe shortness of breath
  • Decrease in or loss of consciousness

If you’re experiencing a medical or psychiatric emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest hospital. Care Essentials does not provide emergency care.
