When to go to urgent care

Urgent care is best when you or your family have a minor illness or injury that can’t wait until tomorrow, and the doctor’s office is closed. Urgent care costs less than the emergency room and it’s usually faster, too. See a full list of our services. Use live urgent care wait times to choose your fastest option. Urgent care can help with the following:

  • Minor injuries and burns
  • Cold and flu symptoms
  • Cuts, scrapes and stitches
  • Sprains and strains
  • Sore throat and strep throat

When to go to the emergency room

Severe health problems are best treated at the emergency room (ER). The emergency room usually takes longer and costs more than urgent care. Call 911 or visit Methodist Hospital in St. Louis Park if you need emergency care right away. The ER can help with the following:

  • Major injuries and burns
  • Chest pain or shortness of breath
  • Stomach pain (severe)
  • Bleeding you can’t stop
  • Allergic reaction (severe)
  • Pregnant women in labor
