Steel Valley Express Care fills the gap between maintaining your general health provided by your primary care physicians and life-threatening conditions treated an Emergency Room.

If you wait days or weeks for an appointment with your primary care physician, you run the risk of your condition getting worse and requiring more complex (and more expensive) treatment.

Emergency room visits can be 3 to 6 times more costly than a visit to our medical office. An urgent care has significantly lower co-payments and overall medical costs than emergency rooms.

If you are in need of emergency medical care for a critical or life-threatening illness or injury, please call 911 or go directly to the Emergency Room.
