Immediate Care

Loyola offers immediate care services for adults and children in four convenient locations. These services are provided on a walk-in basis, no appointment necessary, at times when many physicians' offices are closed.

Immediate care is not the same as emergency room care. The cost of an immediate care visit is more in line with the cost of a physician visit. Plus, wait times to see our doctors are far less than an emergency room wait time. Unlike emergency treatment, our immediate care doctors will follow up with you and your doctor after treatment.

Immediate care is meant to treat those situations that are not life-threatening but that require prompt medical attention.

If you think your condition is serious, or you are suffering such symptoms as chest pain, shortness of breath, seizure, serious injury or possible poisoning or drug overdose, get to a hospital Emergency Department.
If you're still wondering when immediate care is appropriate, here is a list of injuries and conditions that are typically treated in immediate care visits:

  • Cough and cold
  • Allergy symptoms
  • Fever
  • Sinus, ear or respiratory infections
  • Fractures
  • Sprains
  • Minor burns
  • Minor cuts
