Moffitt Urgent Care provides expedited treatment and care for Moffitt patients and the expansion allows Moffitt to treat more patients with urgent cancer related needs on-site. Moffitt Urgent Care, formerly known as the Direct Referral Center (DRC), has 27 dedicated beds.
For cancer patients with already compromised immune systems, what starts as a minor medical issue can rapidly escalate into an emergency requiring care from a team of dedicated professionals familiar with managing the side effects and complications of cancer and cancer treatment.
The Moffitt Urgent Care medical team is fully trained to diagnose and treat many common cancer-related, medical and surgical complications, such as:
- Neutropenic fevers
- Shortness of breath
- Intractable nausea/vomiting
- Intractable pain
Moffitt Urgent Care provides care 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Patients are encouraged to seek care immediately even if they are experiencing symptoms after hours or on the weekends. However, Moffitt patients who are under active care by a Moffitt provider are advised to call their primary care provider first if they have medical concerns.
Patients experiencing trauma, cardiac emergencies, stroke, severe respiratory difficulties or other medical emergencies like a massive bleeding, would need to call 911 to facilitate treatment at the nearest emergency room.
Moffitt Urgent Care is located on the first floor of the Magnolia Campus to the right of the diamond after entering through the Red Valet lobby.
