Emergency Care Visit
ZoomCare Super is a fast, affordable ER alternative. Staffed with board-certified emergency physicians and equipped with X-Ray, CT, and Ultrasound, Super can treat 80% of the reasons why adults and kids go to the Emergency Room. The best part? It’s 1/4 the cost of a typical hospital ER.
Injuries are painful, but your bill doesn't have to be. ZoomCare Super can treat your serious (but non-life-threatening) concerns for 1/4 of the cost of the ER.
