What is the Urgency Center?
Equipped with the latest medical technology and staffed by board-certified ER physicians and emergency-trained nurses, the Urgency Center can treat a wide range of illnesses and injuries for which you might otherwise go to a hospital ER.
*We do not accept ambulances; however, we will transport patients to St. Cloud Hospital if necessary.
How is the Urgency Center different than urgent care or the ER?
Access to advanced lab and imaging equipment allows staff to treat more serious conditions that cannot be treated at an urgent care clinic.
Patients do not stay overnight at the Urgency Center because it is not attached to a hospital.
What will it cost?
Costs will depend on the treatment required. Usually, at a lower cost than a visit to the hospital emergency room.
Most health plans are accepted; however, you do not need to have insurance to come to the Urgency Center. Since benefit plans vary, please check with your insurance company. After your paperwork is sent to your insurance company, a bill will be sent to you. All co-pays are due at the time of your visit. The Urgency Center accepts cash, personal checks, Visa®, MasterCard® and Discover® as payment options.
