When you come to our emergency room, you can expect compassionate care and the highest level of medical expertise from our doctors, nurses and staff. At the emergency room, you will be greeted within minutes and assessed by a triage nurse who will determine your needed level of care. If this assessment indicates a condition that may be critical, you will be seen immediately. We respect your time, and we strive to take care of each patient as soon as possible.
Once evaluated by a physician, you'll move through the emergency room process as quickly as possible, seeing physicians, having labs taken and other tests performed if necessary to diagnose and provide you with the highest quality of care in an efficient manner. It's our commitment to you to provide quick yet thorough emergency care.
