When to Go Where for the Right Level of Care


With the addition of Ochsner Urgent Care, Ochsner Health System is increasing access to convenient, non-emergency care services throughout New Orleans.

It is important to seek the correct level of care for your illness or ailment. For annual checkups and care for chronic illnesses, primary care physicians are the appropriate level of care, while urgent care clinics are a great option for minor illnesses, sprains and broken bones, offering after-hours and weekend care. For serious life-threatening issues, an emergency room is the best place for the higher level of care required.
