What is Immediate Care?

For conditions and sudden illnesses that are not life-threatening, a visit to the emergency room is not necessarily the best choice. With an average wait time of 2-4 hours and costs reaching up to six times higher at the ER, patients often find themselves spending their entire day at the hospital just to treat a simple wound or cough. Factor in the average ER co-pay of $75-$100 (versus $20-$30 at an Immediate care clinic), and trips to the hospital emergency room become even more costly and time-consuming than previously thought.

Immediate care centers offer complementary care to emergency rooms and family medical practices. By providing immediate care in a small practice setting, Waukegan Immediate Care is able to attend to patients within minutes of their arrival while offering considerably lower fees and co-pays. Unlike the average family practitioner, we provide walk-in service and are able to treat minor injuries up through broken bones as well as routine procedures and tests
