What's the difference?

At GoHealth Urgent Care, we offer a more convenient and affordable way to get help – and without the wait of an Emergency Room. Our experienced providers are equipped with the tools and technology needed to provide the highest quality care. Use the handy chart below to determine where you should go to get the help YOU need.

Urgent Care vs. Emergency Room
