What do you mean by immediate care?
Immediate care clinics are a facility that offers fast professional medical care at a moment’s notice. They are available for issues that do not require a visit to the emergency room or hospital, and usually are not life-threatening or limb-threatening issue, but more often minor illnesses and injuries that need to be looked into.

Immediate care and urgent care clinics are used and relied on by millions of people each year in the United States. Immediate care clinics offer medical care by medical staff at any given notice for issues pertaining to non-life-threatening and non-limb-threatening issues.
Urgent Cares are also medical care clinics that have medical staff to help with acute illnesses or injuries.
