You know how your smoke alarm batteries only seem to start beeping at 2 a.m.? Well, the same is often true for injuries and illnesses—they always seem to happen at night or over the weekend, when your regular doctors are off the clock. That’s where Englewood Health Urgent Care comes in.
Englewood Health Urgent Care provides adult and pediatric urgent and non-urgent medical care seven days a week, with extended weekday and weekend hours. Conveniently located in Englewood, Cresskill, Fair Lawn, and Jersey City, Englewood Health’s urgent care centers are a local resource for a wide range of health services.
Here are three unexpected services you can rely on Englewood Health Urgent Care for:
While many still perceive urgent care as just a resource for urgent illnesses and injuries (cuts, sprained ankles, flu, etc.), urgent care also provides a range of routine care services. Visitors to urgent care can get their yearly vaccinations or undergo pre-employment, school, or camp physicals. Though urgent care does not replace your regular physician appointments for routine care, it’s nice to know it’s there when you need it fast.
Women’s Health Services
Though most urgent care centers do not have a gynecologist or obstetrician on site, they do employ highly skilled, board-certified physicians and other providers who can diagnose and treat the gamut of health issues, including women’s health conditions. Urgent care can offer treatment for urinary tract infections, morning sickness, vaginal infections, menopause flare-ups, pelvic and abdominal pain, and pregnancy and STI testing, just to name a few.
Tests of Many Varieties
The diagnostic capacity of urgent care extends far beyond your average strep test. When you visit urgent care with an illness or injury that requires additional testing, the providers at urgent care can offer blood tests, EKGs, lab tests, and X-rays to get to the bottom of what’s ailing you. The team can also offer you a knowledgeable referral to a local specialist for follow-up care if needed and can share your test results with your current doctor or doctors, so you can start feeling better as quickly as possible.
