ER or Urgent Care?

Health problems don't always happen when your health care provider's office is open. When you or your child needs care, use this list to help you decide if you should go to the closest emergency department or a Legacy urgent care center in your area.

If your injury or illness isn't as urgent, you can call your primary care provider. Many clinics can see you within a day or so. If you don't have a primary care provider, call 503-335-3500 or go to www.legacyhealth.org/findaprovider to find one who is right for you.
