Moms, dads and caregivers work hard every day to keep their kids happy, healthy and safe. They also rely on services like urgent care and the emergency room when their children get hurt or become ill unexpectedly. While the pediatrician’s office should always be the first line of defense, sometimes it just isn’t an option, like during weekends or after regular business hours.
If your child has a life-threatening injury or illness, the physicians at Pomona Valley Health Centers urge you to go to the nearest emergency room. However, for parents who have a child with a sore throat, fever, earache, diarrhea, or mild to moderate injuries, it’s best to go to the closest urgent care instead.
The Pomona Valley Urgent Care Centers in Chino Hills, Claremont and La Verne are available to children of all ages.
Here are five reasons more moms are choosing urgent care centers over emergency rooms:
In the United States there about twice as many urgent care facilities as emergency rooms. If you’re looking for quality care that’s also close-to-home, you’re more likely to find it at an urgent care center.
The staff was extremely helpful and courteous, and the facility was clean and comfortable. An overall wonderful experience.
