For Patients

When you arrive at the Emergency Center, a triage nurse will speak with you about your condition. "Triage" is our process of placing patients in the order they will be seen and treated based on the severity of your illness.

The triage nurse will assess the urgency of your condition and decide which area of our Emergency Center will best address your medical needs. You will be assigned to our Acute Care Center, Express Care Center, Seniors Emergency Center or Pediatric Emergency Center.

We greatly appreciate your patience during your wait.
