Providing Up-to-the-Minute Care

Upon arriving at the Emergency Department, each patient is assessed and evaluated by a Registered Nurse to determine the urgency of the illness or injury. The most critically ill or severely injured patients will be seen immediately. All patients will be seen as soon as possible depending on the volume of patients receiving care at that time.

It is important to know when to visit an Emergency facility, check your symptoms to determine whether you have an emergency illness or injury.
