When To Seek Emergency Care
For treatment of minor illnesses and injuries, choose an Owensboro Health Urgent Care location, a faster, cheaper alternative to the Emergency Department.
Be prepared for medical emergencies
When your emergency medicine providers know your health history, they can give you the best possible care. If your primary care doctor is part of our Owensboro Health Medical Group, rest assured your emergency care team can quickly get secure access to your medical record. Otherwise, consider creating and keeping, in a convenient place, a document that lists your:
- Current medications
- Medical conditions
- Recent medical procedures
- Treatment preferences or restrictions
If possible, bring this information with you to Owensboro Health Regional Hospital’s Emergency Department. But don’t delay your visit to find or collect the information. In an emergency, always seek medical attention right away.
