There are times when you have concerning symptoms that should be seen by a doctor immediately but may not be considered a medical emergency. At Rapid Healthcare, we are your source in the Woodridge and Romeoville area for acute care. We welcome all PPO plans, Medicaid and many other health insurance plans at our medical clinic in Bolingbrook, IL.
What Is Acute Care?
Acute care is a level of urgent medical or supervised care that can benefit those with acute health conditions. Our medical team at Rapid Healthcare can provide urgent medical care for conditions that are not severe enough to require a visit to the hospital but do need immediate attention. We can also provide supervised care for those transitioning from the hospital to home or for specific same-day treatments.
Our acute care clinic can provide patients with same-day personalized treatment for urgent conditions. We offer the convenience of a walk-in clinic with the expertise and caring environment of a primary care facility. You can expect exceptional medical care for your acute condition, helping you avoid the hassle and expense of visiting the ER.
Acute Care Conditions
There are many situations where you need to see a doctor within 24 hours, but the condition is not severe enough for ER attention. At Rapid Healthcare, we can see you the same day for many injuries, illnesses and chronic conditions that require acute care. Some reasons you may want to visit our acute care clinic include:
- Fever, headaches and flu symptoms
- Strep and sore throat symptoms
- Minor burns and lacerations
- Minor fractures (fingers and toes)
- Ear and skin infections
- Diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, nausea or constipation
Acute care may also be needed for chronic conditions like COPD, diabetes, AFib and cardiovascular disease. Treatment can be performed to regulate certain conditions without waiting to see your primary care physician or specialist.
