Getting sick or injured can happen anywhere, but Miami FL offers some of the country’s best medical facilities. Some of the most impressive include Miami Dade County’s award winning Kendall Regional Medical Center, which has a 24 hour emergency room boasting a lower waiting time than your average American hospital.
Another stand out is Mount Sinai Medical Center, which is not only the state’s first and only freestanding hospital but also home to three top notch emergency centers, including the largest of its kind in the area. The aforementioned Emergency Room of the Future has a large fancier name, but the most impressive thing about the facility is that it’s one of only two hospitals in the area to receive a Level II Trauma designation from the Florida Department of Health. The hospital has a whopping 608 beds at its main campus in Miami Beach and a handful of satellite emergency centers throughout the metro area.
Urgent Care Centers
Urgent care clinics are an excellent option for minor medical problems and illnesses. They are staffed by physicians who are trained in emergency medicine and can diagnose and treat many common illnesses and injuries.
In addition to being less expensive than the emergency room, urgent care clinics are typically open late and have flexible hours so you can see a doctor after work or on weekends. These centers also offer on-location labs and testing equipment, making it faster for doctors to diagnose your condition so they can start treatment right away.
Generally, urgent care clinics can treat most minor illnesses and injuries, including cold and flu symptoms, sinus infections, strep throat, bites, burns, rashes, coughs, and even UTIs. Most clinics also offer preventative care such as annual physicals and lab testing.
