When to Use a Medical Aid Unit
To better meet your health care needs, Christiana Care offers easy access to care from a medical professional every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at most medical aid units in New Castle and Kent Counties as Christiana Care Care Now. Patient registration ends at 7:30 p.m.
Adults and children can visit a Christiana Care Medical Aid Unit to treat injuries or illnesses that are not extremely serious or life-threatening but require care within a few hours or the same day. When you need medical attention quickly and your family doctor is not available, Christiana Care Medical Aid Units provide exceptional care in a timely manner. Our health care providers will see you for:
|Asthma attacks||Sore throats and coughs|
|Broken bones||Sports injuries|
|Eye and ear problems||Sprains and strains|
|Flu-like symptoms||STD concerns (Sexually Transmitted Disease)|
|Gastrointestinal (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea)||Tuberculosis testing|

No appointment is necessary. We participate in most health-insurance plans.
Christiana Care Medical Aid Units are not a substitute for a hospital emergency department which you should visit for treatment of severe accidents or life-threatening symptoms.
