Emergency departments in acute care hospitals are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to address the most serious and life-threatening health issues

Call 911 or go to emergency for issues such as:
  • stroke/facial weakness/ extremity weakness
  • heart attack/chest pain or tightness
  • unable to wake/unconscious
  • sudden onset of severe headache or confusion
  • seizure and/or severe head injury
  • major assault such as stabbings or shootings
  • severe difficulty breathing or trouble speaking
  • uncontrolled or severe bleeding
  • major trauma such as loss of limb
  • severe allergic reaction
  • severe burns

If your issue is not life-threatening, you may wait longer at an emergency department because more serious cases will be given priority.
