Minor illnesses and accidents happen to everyone. When you have a non-emergency but still need immediate medical care you can seek out an urgent care center. Elmhurst Memorial offers two Immediate Care Centers, one located at Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare Addison Health Center and one at the Lombard Health Center. These locations are part of the Elmhurst Memorial Hospital network and offer the same high standard of care for even your minor medical emergencies.

No appointments are necessary for Immediate Care visits but you should check with your insurance provider to make sure that the visit and treatment will be covered. Some common illnesses and injuries that you might seek treatment for at an Immediate Care center include:

-Sore throats (including an earache or sinus infection)

-Colds and flu

-Minor rashes or allergic reactions

-Strains, sprains or fractures

-Minor cuts or burns

Because the Immediate Care Center has had an increase in demand, the Addison and Lombard locations are expanding their weekend and holiday hours. Both sites will open at 8 am and will remain open until 6 pm on weekends and holidays. Weekday hours will remain the same, 8 am to 8 pm. 

The Elmhurst Memorial’s Addison Immediate Care center is located in the Addison Health Center at 303 W. Lake St. The Lombard Immediate Care is located in the Lombard Health Center at 130 S. Main St.

If you experience any of the following symptoms, call 9-1-1 or go to your closest Emergency Department:

-Difficulty breathing or chest pain

-Altered level of consciousness or mental state

-Severe allergic reaction that could include hives or throat swelling

-Profuse bleeding

-Inability to drink or eat

Many people will be better served by the expanded hours that the Immediate Care center is offering.
