Emergency

When the worst happens, we’ll be ready

Emergencies aren’t something you plan for, and when they do happen, it can be overwhelming. If you or a loved one needs emergency medical care, you will find high-quality, expert medical attention at North Shore Medical Center. The doctors, nurses and support staff in our emergency department are committed to quality care and an excellent patient experience.

And if your condition isn’t life-threatening, you can even schedule a visit online to reduce your wait time at the ER.

Minor Care for minor emergencies

For minor emergencies that require urgent care, we also offer Minor Care. This service is an alternative to the regular emergency department, where your treatment is determined by the severity of your condition. Minor Care is designed to treat you when you need immediate attention for things like lacerations, sprains, fractures, sore throats, ear infections and minor rashes. Emergency staff will refer you to Minor Care through the regular ER and register you at bedside to save time. This service is available from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day of the week.
