Note: SURVEY HAS ENDED.
Urgent Care facilities primarily treat injuries or illnesses requiring immediate attention, but not serious enough to require an emergency room visit. In some towns and cities Urgent Care centers are open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Still others are open for extended hours 7 days a week.
In response to an expressed concern that health care on Shelter Island – short of emergency medical services – is limited on weekends and at night, the Senior Citizens Foundation conducted a survey of Shelter Island residents between July and October 2017 to determine the extent of their interest in an Urgent Care capability.
If the results from this survey confirm that there is a community desire for an Urgent Care capability on Shelter Island, we will advocate vigorously for its implementation, benefiting residents of all ages.
