Emergency Department – Do Not Delay in Seeking Critical Care
Our Emergency Department is staffed 24/7 to serve those with emergency medical conditions. Individuals experiencing serious injuries or medical symptoms such as chest pain, abdominal pain, numbness, difficulty breathing or mental confusion should call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest emergency department. It could save your life.
For your safety and privacy, all the rooms in the Emergency Department are private and patients are placed in the appropriate room based on symptoms. Rooms are cleaned regularly and we utilize UV light technology to disinfect.
Individuals Experiencing COVID-19 Symptoms
If you develop a fever or cough, have difficulty breathing or have had close contact with someone who has had a confirmed positive COVID-19 test result, please seek medical attention by calling your provider’s office or an Urgent Care Center.
