QCare Urgent Care

QCare allows Penn Highlands Healthcare  to provide fast, convenient care for patients in a private setting. The choice of QCare over the emergency department helps alleviate the wait times in the emergency department and allows the staff the time needed to care for true emergencies.

Our goal at QCare is to ensure that residents throughout the region have access to the health care services they need, when they need it.

QCare is an additional option for patients that can not be seen by their primary care physician or for patients that do not have a family doctor.

QCare or Emergency Room?

Whenever you or someone you love has sudden symptoms of an illness or injury, your first thought is getting to a medical facility. But how do you decide which medical facility you should go to? There are two different places you can go when symptoms suddenly appear- the emergency room or QCare urgent care. How do you decide which you should go to?

If it’s a life threatening injury or illness, go straight to the emergency room (which is sometimes best accomplished by calling 911). There is one conveniently located at each Penn Highlands Healthcare hospital. Open 24/7, this is definitely the right choice for any sudden, serious injury or illness.
