ED or Urgent Care?

The Emergency Department and Urgent Care often get grouped together; however, they are not the same. Urgent Care fills a gap when you become sick or injured, but your regular doctor is not available. An Urgent Care treats minor illness or injury such as headaches, cuts, sore throat, stitches and rashes. 
Steward Urgent Care of Austintown, located at 20 Ohltown Road in Austintown, treats unexpected illnesses or injury of patients of all ages that do not require a trip to the Emergency Room. The Urgent Care is open 7 days a week.

Emergency rooms are for emergency situations and treating life-threatening conditions. They are equipped and staffed for the most complex and critical needs. Hospital emergency departments provide medical care 24/7—day and night. Chest pain, bleeding, blurred vision, confusion, trauma and slurred speech are all symptoms that should be treated in an emergency room. Be sure to call 911 when experiencing any of these symptoms.
