What about pediatric urgent care facilities that are open in the evening only for PM Pediatric Care Services?
These are corporate pediatric urgent care centers. They are open only in the PM and the range of services they provide is less than what Statcare provides. Statcare is a small business local to Long Island and serves the communities in Nassau and Suffolk. At Statcare, prompt personal attention is what you can count on because you and your child are our priority! Return to top
What about the hospital ER or the pediatric emergency care area?
Statcare is not an Emergency Room. An Urgent Care facility like Statcare is a good alternative because no child should have to be taken to an ER unless it's a life-threatening emergency. As a parent, you need to consider the following:
1. Most hospital ER's are geared ONLY for the sickest of patients. The less sick will just have to wait in line.
2. Most hospital emergency rooms are 'general purpose' ER's. There are only a handful of long island (Nassau or Suffolk County) hospitals that have a dedicated pediatric emergency care department. The rest of the hospital ER's treat adults and children both in no particular preferential order. They may have a separate pediatric triage area or a designated 'pediatric urgent care' area. It's purely geographical.
3. Your child will be exposed to sick patients of all ages that are in the ER that day. Children tend to touch everything and are particularly prone to picking up new germs like MRSA.
4. Unless you reach the ER in an ambulance, you will have to park in an open parking lot some distance from the facility or park in a metered multi-storey garage - these are small but significant inconveniences.
5. Imagine walking the distance from the parking lot while still carrying your sick child in your arms; not to mention rain, snow or inclement weather.
6. Under most health insurance plans, the ER co-pay is very high; usually in the $100-150 range.
7. If you don't have insurance, the average cost of an ER visit will be $1000-1400 for Long Island area.
8. Hospital based ER's will provide a separate 'pediatric urgent care' area. Don't be fooled. The bills are still generated as a hospital ER visit and your ER co-pay will apply; not your urgent care co-pay that is listed on your card. If you have a deductible, all that money will come out of your pocket. Remember, all hospital based pediatric urgent care facilities use the same registration system and billing system as the one they use for hospitalized patients.
9. In a hospital pediatric emergency care center you will just be another number after the triage is done. You will remain a low priority as long as sicker people are continuously being brought in via ambulances. At Statcare, your child will be seen by emergency care providers that would attend to your child if you went to a local area emergency room in Long Island.
10. Pediatricians, family physicians and emergency medicine physicians all agree that most pediatric illnesses and injuries don't require the extensive services of a pediatric emergency care facility. Even your health insurance plan would rather you go to an urgent care center. Visit their website to learn more. Note: Statcare is NOT a substitute for the ER if that is what your child needs.
