Emergencies: We expect them every day.
When you or a family member faces an emergency, rest assured that the staff at Women & Children’s Hospital (WCH) stand ready to provide quality medical care as quickly as possible. Our Emergency Department (ED) is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and is prepared to provide immediate evaluation of acute illnesses or injuries for both adult and pediatric patients.
Our ED is staffed with experienced, board-certified physicians and registered nurses who are specially trained in emergency medicine, critical care and advanced life support. Each of our treatment rooms is equipped with the latest emergency care technology in order to handle most life-threatening situations.
Every Second Counts
When you have an emergency, don’t delay seeking treatment at the nearest hospital or calling 9-1-1. If you sense something is wrong, take action. It’s better to be assessed by a licensed healthcare provider than to risk your health by being unsure.
