Deciding whether your illness or injury is a true emergency can be hard when you feel sick or are in pain. While the hospital’s emergency department is prepared for every kind of medical emergency, Ochsner Lafayette General’s Urgent Care Centers are a great place to visit for medical needs that are urgent, but not emergent. 

Our urgent care centers provide treatment for common illnesses and minor injuries. While the hospital ER treats patients based on the severity of their conditions, our urgent care centers see patients on a “first come first served” basis, with limited wait time.
