Deciding whether your illness or injury is a true emergency can be hard when you feel sick or are in pain. While the hospital’s emergency department is prepared for every kind of medical emergency, Lafayette General’s Urgent Care Centers are a great place to visit for medical needs that are urgent, but not emergent.
Lafayette General Urgent Care Centers are also a great place for pediatric urgent care. It is the policy of our urgent care centers to treat persons one year of age and older. Children under one year of age can be susceptible to a variety of ailments and need to specifically see a pediatrician. Lafayette General Medical Center offers a Dedicated Pediatric Treatment Area within the Emergency Room. The Pediatric Treatment Area is open every day from 11am – 11pm and is staffed by pediatricians.
We know medical issues don’t just pop up during normal business hours. Our after-hours walk-in centers provide convenient, urgent care during the day, in the evenings and on weekends.
Our urgent care centers provide treatment for common illnesses and minor injuries. While the hospital ER treats patients based on the severity of their conditions, our urgent care centers see patients on a “first come first served” basis, with limited wait time.
