Emergency or Urgent Care?

|

When your child needs medical care and can't wait until your doctor's office opens, where should you go? This chart will help you know whether a visit to one of our three Urgent Care Clinics or the Emergency Department in Seattle is best. Urgent Care is not intended for emergencies, but is appropriate for minor illnesses and injuries.

Remember, if your child's illness or injury is life-threatening, call 911.
