When to go to the Bridge Walk-In Health Center

When you are not experiencing a life-threatening emergency, visiting the emergency department can be costly and time consuming. Visiting a walk-in center like Family HealthCare Network’s Visalia Bridge Walk-In Health Center is a great alternative where you will be treated quickly, while saving money. With extended hours offered seven days a week, and no appointment necessary, our team of medical providers treat conditions including:

  • Flu and cold
  • Coughs and sore throat
  • High fevers
  • Vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach pain
  • Cuts and severe scrapes
  • Minor injuries and burns
  • Asthma and allergies
  • Skin rashes and infections
  • Minor strains and sprains
  • Broken bones
  • Non-allergic reactions to animal or bug bites
  • And more

When to go to the Emergency Room

Emergency Rooms (ER) are meant for true emergencies and are equipped to handle trauma, x-rays, surgical procedures, and other life threatening situations. Visit your local ER immediately when you experience any of the following:

  • Severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) due to food, or animal/bug bites
  • Chest pain
  • Constant vomiting
  • Continuous bleeding
  • Severe shortness of breath
  • Deep wounds
  • One-sided weakness or numbness in the leg or arm
  • Head injuries
  • Unconsciousness

Be Prepared

Whether you’re visiting the walk-in center or the ER, we recommend all patients keep a list of the medications you take with you, including dosages and any over-the-counter medications and vitamins. Many medications, and even vitamins, can interact with the treatment options your provider plans to use. Knowing about your medical history can be very helpful to your provider in making an accurate diagnosis and creating an effective treatment plan.
