Save the Emergency Department for our community’s emergencies.

Caring for patients with non-critical injuries or illnesses ties up our Emergency Department’s (ED) resources and restricts our team’s ability to provide life-saving emergency care. For our doctors, nurses and specialists to be there with exceptional care when it’s needed most, the ED must stay accessible for our community’s most severe and urgent conditions.

If you are experiencing mild COVID-19 symptoms or have come in contact with someone who you believe is infected, please skip the wait at the ED and visit a testing site near you
