Advocate's approach to excellence in immediate care
Minor illnesses and injuries can occur any time of the day or week. Advocate Health Care accommodates that unpredictability by providing care when you need it, without an appointment, and without the time and expense of a trip to the emergency room.
How to choose: emergency care or immediate care?
Most of Advocate's walk-in and immediate care centers are open seven days a week with evening hours and can treat:
- Colds, coughs, sore throats, and flu
- Cuts requiring stitches
- Ear and sinus infections
- Fevers over 100.4
- Food poisoning
- Fractures, sprains, and strains
- Minor burns
- Nausea and vomiting
- Nose bleeds
- Respiratory and urinary tract infections
Most locations offer Saturday hours, set same-day appointments, and accommodate walk-in patients without an appointment. Quality treatment with a commitment to time-consciousness means most patients are on their way home in less than an hour.
