This section contains answers to specific Go-Care questions as well as the most common questions patient have about medical aid centers and urgent care.
In most states, the typical urgent care center, or walk-in clinic, treats patients who cannot wait for a routine doctor appointment. Most of these patients have illnesses and injuries that do not require the services of a hospital emergency department, but do need a skilled evaluation and treatment.
A typical urgent care center:
Our medical center provides services that are offered in typical walk-in clinics that are generally called “urgent care centers” in the rest of the USA.
The State of Delaware has unique rules that require a facility licensed as an urgent care center to meet rules that are generally reserved for large hospital emergency departments. Go-Care does not meet this Delaware-specific definition for an “urgent care” under the rules of the State of Delaware, nor does any other Medical Aid Unit in Delaware.
This is why all walk-in clinics in Delaware use the term Medical Aid Unit as opposed to urgent care.
For members of the public, who are aware of the definition generally used to define an urgent care center; our clinic does meet the criteria that define an urgent care facility as published by the Urgent Care Association of America.
While Go-Care is a walk-in center, you can get in line online at either of our locations. Choose the location most convenient to you.
