The adult areas are separated into the Adult Main and the Adult UrgiCare where care is provided by specially trained physicians and physician assistants. The Adult Main area provides care to individuals who present with potentially critical conditions or injuries such as chest pain, severe respiratory difficulty, stroke and pneumonia. Our Adult UrgiCare area provides care for non-critical conditions such as back pain, headache, joint injuries and strains.
