What’s Urgent Care? Urgent care services are medically necessary services which are required for an illness or injury that would not result in further disability or death if not treated immediately, but require professional attention and have the potential to develop such a threat if treatment is delayed longer than 24 hours. An urgent care condition could be a sprain, sore throat or rising temperature. Urgent care services are provided by physicians, physician assistants and/or nurse practitioners.

Emergency Services

Dial 911 or report to Tripler Army Medical Center Emergency Department. For life-threatening emergencies, report to nearest Emergency Department.

What’s an Emergency? TRICARE defines an emergency as a medical, maternity or psychiatric condition that would lead a “prudent layperson” to believe that a serious medical condition exists, or that the absence of immediate medical attention would result in a threat to life, limb or sight, and requires immediate medical treatment or which has painful symptoms requiring immediate attention to relieve suffering. For emergencies, such as profuse bleedings, unconsciousness, chest pain and obviously broken bones, dial 911, go to Tripler Army Medical Center or the nearest emergency room.
