Once you arrive at our emergency room, we’ll register you at the main desk. Then, a registered nurse will assess your condition and talk to you about your symptoms.

Yes, your family can be with you in the emergency center. For your safety, we do limit visitors to one family member per patient in the waiting room. This helps reduce the spread of COVID-19.

We see patients as quickly as possible. In order to make sure everyone gets the care they need, we see patients with more severe illnesses or injuries first. People experiencing an emergency medical condition, like a stroke, heart attack or severe bleeding, will be seen immediately.

A non-emergency condition isn’t life threatening. This could be a broken bone, sprain, flu symptoms, minor cut, rashes and other common conditions. These conditions can be very uncomfortable or painful, so we do our best to see you as quickly as possible. However, we will prioritize a patient with a life-threatening condition to ensure everyone gets the care they need when they need it. 

If you’re experiencing a non-emergency condition, try a video visit or visiting urgent care. This can save you time and money, and it keeps the emergency room open for patients who have a serious condition.
