James Gularek, chief executive officer of Hawthorn Medical Associates, notes, "Urgent care does not replace primary care, and it is not a substitute for a hospital emergency room, but it does fill a special need.
For example, if a patient develops a routine illness or injury that requires care when the primary care physician's office is closed, but is not serious enough to require a more expensive visit to the emergency room, "urgent care providers can help," said Gularek.
Urgent care services also are covered by most insurances.
