What to Expect

From the moment you arrive, we’ll do everything possible to get you the care you need fast. We use innovative protocols and special pathways to treat your emergency — better and faster.

  • On arrival, you’ll be asked to provide basic registration information.
  • A triage Nurse will rapidly identify and prioritize the level and urgency of care you need.
  • For many diagnoses, standard procedures are in place to quickly begin lab tests, x-rays, ultrasound or medication.
  • One of our experienced emergency medicine practitioners will examine you and begin a treatment plan. Any waiting family or friends will receive regular progress updates.
  • Prior to discharge, you’ll receive a full briefing and instructions to continue care as needed.
  • If your physician has signed up for our Autofax service, he or she will receive a copy of any CAT scans, lab work, and a synopsis of your visit. Ask you physician if they participate in our Autofax service. If they don’t, please ask them to sign up.
