Emergency Room or Urgent Care
When you’re sick or injured, it can be hard to tell the severity of the problem. Should you go to the hospital Emergency Department or to our Urgent Care at Falcon Health Center? The answer depends on your symptoms.
Emergency Room Symptoms
If your symptoms are life-threatening, immediately call 911 for an ambulance or have someone drive you to the hospital Emergency Department.
- Chest pain or other signs of a heart attack (pain that spreads to your upper body, stomach pain, shortness of breath, anxiety, lightheadedness or nausea)
- Uncontrolled bleeding (including coughing up or vomiting blood)
- Stroke symptoms (numbness on one side of your body or sudden loss of vision or speech)
- Major injury (broken bone, amputation or head trauma)
- Severe shortness of breath
- Sudden dizziness

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms now, dial 911 immediately or call the Emergency Department at 419-354-8910.
