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.
