Potential Emergency Situations and Conditions
Many nontraumatic situations or conditions may occur and need to be handled properly. Listed in the directory below are some, for which we have provided a brief overview.
Sports-Related Injuries

Most sports injuries are due to either trauma or overuse of muscles or joints. The majority are caused by minor trauma involving muscles, ligaments, tendons, or bones.

When to Call for Help

Anytime you are not comfortable with a medical situation, call 911 (or your local emergency number), go to your nearest emergency room, or call your family physician.

Emergency Information Form

In an emergency, it is easy to "forget" even the most well-known information. That is why it is crucial for you to complete the information in this form for each member of your household. 

Child Health Emergencies

Having a very sick or severely injured child is a parent’s worst nightmare. If it happened to your child, would you know the best way to go about getting treatment? Knowing when to call an ambulance is important.

Emergency Care: When is it the Right Choice

If you're sick or hurt and want help quickly, it may seem like a good idea to go to the emergency room (ER) for care. You may think of the ER as a source of the most immediate medical attention, but if your situation is not a real emergency, this isn't true.

How to Respond to an Eye Injury

If you suffer a serious eye injury, what you don't do immediately afterward may help more than what you do.


Many poisonous substances can potentially turn fatal if inhaled, digested, or absorbed by the body.

What's ER Extra?

We are the community’s exclusive provider of ER Extra™, a new approach to the emergency room experience, designed to give you extra fast, extra easy and extra great care.

Extra fast

By the time you enter our emergency room, every minute – every second – seems like forever. That’s why the clock starts ticking the moment your name enters our system at the registration desk. In general, initial assessments take place within 15 minutes of arrival. Patients with non-life threatening conditions can expect to be evaluated, treated and discharged to their home in typically less than two hours. To deliver the fastest quality care possible, the emergency room has a computerized tracking system that records every second you spend there. This data is constantly reviewed by your treatment team to streamline processes and speed up the time it takes to deliver care. The result is that you see a member of the clinical team sooner, so treatment can begin quicker.

Extra easy

Board certified doctors and highly trained staff are by your side throughout your visit. They are there to explain your diagnosis and how it will be treated, as well as discuss any follow up care you may need.

Extra great care
