    Getting Care During The Holidays

    Although coined the most wonderful time of the year, the holiday season can unfortunately bring with it injuries and illness. Woke up on Christmas morning with the gift of a sore throat and fever? Sliced your finger carving the delicious turkey you spent all day preparing? While no one ever wants to cut their festivities short, the reality is we should all be prepared with how and where we will receive care should we need it. Are Renown Urgent Care Facilities Open During the Holidays? Renown Urgent Care sees patients 365 days a year, with limited hours on holidays, for medical concerns that are urgent but not life-threatening. Urgent care providers can treat everything from cuts and burns to fevers and allergic reactions and appointments can be booked ahead of time online. If no appointments are available, you may also walk into any of our various urgent care facilities. Conditions and injuries treated at urgent care include: Cuts Fractures Burns Sprains Fevers Allergic reactions Animal bites Rashes Sore throats Does Renown Offer In-Home Care Options on Holidays?

Renown Emergency Rooms are designed to treat patients who need immediate attention for emergencies, such as: Burns Allergic reactions Broken bones Stitches Skin infections Heart attack Stroke Rashes Venomous stings and bites Asthma attacks Choking or poisoning Fainting, dizziness or confusion Head injuries Seizures Severe bleeding Difficulty breathing Severe headache Eye injuries Severe pain Renown Emergency Rooms are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
