Life-threatening emergencies, such as a heart attack or serious head injury, require a visit to the emergency department. Knoxville Hospital & Clinics’ (KHC) acute care services are setup to assist patients with an illness or injury that does not appear to be life-threatening, but also can’t wait until the next day or for the primary care provider to see them.

Some examples of conditions that are considered an urgent medical condition are:

  • accidents and falls
  • sprains and strains
  • moderate back problems
  • mild or moderate breathing difficulties
  • bleeding/cuts
  • fever or flu
