Go to an Urgent Care Center...
Go to the Emergency Room...


When you have a life-threatening situation, the emergency room of the nearest hospital is your only option. If you have a serious condition  stroke, heart attack, severe bleeding, head injury or other major trauma  go straight to the nearest ER, or better yet... call 911 and have the ambulance take you in. Those arriving by ambulance are taken in faster than those waiting in the ER. Don't take a chance with anything life-threatening.

If your condition is less serious but still requires immediate attention, an urgent care center can accommodate you faster and save you lots of money. Going to an urgent care center also helps keep the emergency room free to handle more serious situations. If you have a non-life-threatening situation like a sprained ankle or an ear infection and go to the ER, you may end up waiting many long hours and paying hundreds of dollars unnecessarily. Most urgent care centers are open for extended hours and can accommodate you and provide relief or care more quickly.


Go to an Urgent Care Center...

For minor illness or injury that requires immediate medical care but is not life-threatening. When in doubt, call ahead. If the urgent care center can't accommodate the condition, they will advise you to go the nearest hospital emergency room.

Urgent Care Centers in The Villages


Go to the Emergency Room...

For serious illness or injury. Seek emergency care by calling 911 when serious, life-threatening illness or injury is suspected. Do not go to an urgent care center for a life-threatening condition; they will just send you to the ER in an ambulance and you could lose valuable and possibly life-saving time than if you called 911 yourself.
