When to Go to the ER

Emergencies aren’t always obvious, “we need to get to an ER now!” kind-of moments. But in those moments, making the decision to call 911 or go to an ER could save a life.

“I don’t want to ‘cry wolf’…”
Our efficient express care system to treat conditions you might be tempted to stay home with or suffer through, like fevers, migraines, sprains, and symptoms of flu or dehydration. Remember, sometimes a quick trip to the ER can prevent a stay in the hospital.
