Emergency Services To Help Heal You

When an emergency happens, our ER is here to offer fast medical help around the clock with a variety of services to support you including an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) with experts in critical care, imaging services, lab services, and more.

Wait in the comfort of your home.

With our InQuicker™ ER waiting service, you can save time by selecting your estimated hospital arrival time, which means you can wait in the comfort of your own home*.

*Our online ER waiting service is not an appointment or reservation service, as the nature of emergency rooms does not allow for the scheduling of medical treatment. The waiting service estimates treatment times based on facility conditions and allows its users to wait from the comfort of their home, rather than the waiting room. Because there may be unforeseen circumstances that may cause projected treatment time delay the InQuicker users may be sent notifications via phone call and email so they can continue waiting at home.

InQuicker is intended only for individuals with non-life-threatening or debilitating medical conditions. It's a simple and convenient way for people with busy lives and families to conveniently access care.  The online waiting service should not be used for life-threatening emergencies or children under the age of three. If you’re experiencing an emergency call 9-1-1 immediately. If you're in doubt about the severity of your condition, you should always seek immediate care by calling or by going to the nearest emergency room.

When Should You Go to the ER?

The emergency room, or ER, is a hospital service where people can seek immediate help for serious injuries or illnesses that can’t be managed or treated at home, in a doctor’s office, or at an urgent care facility.

  • Change in mental status, such as unusual behavior, confusion or difficulty walking or talking
  • Chest or upper abdominal pain or pressure
  • Fainting
