Health Issues in Missouri

Missouri has an interesting topography because half of the state is covered by plains and the other half is covered by the Ozark Mountains. The two areas are then divided by the Missouri River. This leaves endless outdoor recreational activities for residents and visitors. It also causes sports injuries that are best treated at urgent care facilities, unless they are life threatening. Additionally, Missouri suffers from harsh winters and humid summers. This creates asthma and other allergy issues that are easy to treat at urgent care facilities.

Urgent Care in Missouri

Missouri has several urgent care facilities across the state. They help to keep the wait times in the emergency rooms low. This is because they are perfect for treating urgent healthcare problems that are not immediately life threatening. For instance, urgent care facilities are the perfect place for treating minor lacerations that need stitches, sore throats, and minor bone fractures such as toes. Emergency rooms will always have their place, but urgent care facilities in Missouri often have faster care and lower costs than the hospitals. They are also faster than getting in to see a general practitioner.

Specific urgent care and walk-in clinic services available in may include STD testing flu shots, school physicals and many other valuable services
