Urgent care is a category of walk-in clinic focused on the delivery of ambulatory care in a dedicated medical facility outside of a traditional emergency department (emergency room). Urgent care centers primarily treat injuries or illnesses requiring immediate care, but not serious enough to require an emergency department (ED) visit. – Wikipedia


Typically, pediatric urgent care means you bring your child to the walk-in clinic to be seen by doctors, but sometimes the doctors and nurses can come to your child for home health reasons. This is a new path for the industry, but not a new concept. This age-old practice is called doctor “house calls” and it can be of monumental benefit to the patient. – PBM Consulting
