What is a Full-Service ER?
Unlike free-standing emergency rooms, full-service ERs are located at a hospital and are equipped to handle any emergency. Free-standing ERs may offer you convenience, but they can't guarantee you onsite treatment.
Many cases seen at free-standing ERs have to be taken to a full-service ER, meaning those patients must be transported via ambulance to a hospital-based ER like those at St. Vincent's Riverside, St. Vincent's Southside and St. Vincent's Clay County.
So when you have a true emergency, your best bet for treatment is at one of St. Vincent's Full-Service ERs.
Free-Standing ER vs Urgent Care
In many cases, however, you may not need any type of emergency room. Urgent care locations can often provide you the level of treatment you need without the higher costs of free-standing ERs.
St. Vincent's currently has three urgent care locations: one in Ortega , one off Normandy Blvd and one in Mandarin. You can schedule your visit today online at waitathome.com.
