A trip to the emergency department is never fun. But being prepared can make your experience a little easier.
First, know when to visit. Consider your condition — could you be seen by your primary care doctor, orthopaedic urgent care or general urgent care location? Or, does your condition require immediate attention? If so, don’t delay treatment and visit one of our emergency department locations right away.
If you feel you are experiencing a medical emergency and need immediate assistance, please dial 9-1-1.
If an emergency department visit is needed, know what to bring. See our list of items to bring with you that will help to expedite your visit.

This new feature allows us to be better prepared for your visit, but it is not an appointment because in an emergency department patients are treated in the order of the severity of their illness.
