Do not delay appropriate visits to the ER

Baptist Health’s mission is to provide quality patient-centered services and health education, and respond to the changing health needs of our state. Our top priority, as always, is protecting the health and safety of our patients and providers.

Baptist Health’s Emergency Departments are open and providing care for all types of emergency conditions.

Please do not delay appropriate visits to the ER due to fear of exposure to COVID-19. Delay of care could result in poorer overall health outcomes and even life-threatening situations. We assure you that we are treating all patients in a safe and appropriate environment, following all guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

At Baptist Health, you can find the services you need to get through unthinkable accidents, sudden illness and more from the most trusted name in healthcare. Our 24/7 emergency departments are staffed with highly-trained specialists who will care for you through whatever medical emergency life may throw your way.

Each Baptist Health ER features:

  • Multi-functional treatment rooms for patients with varied conditions
  • A dynamic ER design focused on providing a better experience for patients and visitors
  • Highly-qualified, dedicated health care professionals who are committed to the highest standards of care
  • A continued commitment to keep wait times to a minimum

While we treat our patients in order of the severity of the condition, all patients can expect a prompt and thorough examination.

In addition to an exceptional emergency department, Baptist Health also boasts leading care in an array of specialties, including cardiology and stroke. When you choose a Baptist Health ER, you have access to expert physicians from a wide range of specialties, should you need their care before you leave the hospital.

Should I go to the ER or Urgent Care?

Your primary care provider should be your first choice for treatment, but if you need immediate assistance you might be trying to decide whether you should go to the ER or an Urgent Care facility. If you need prompt treatment for a condition that isn’t life-threatening, Urgent Care clinics or Baptist Health Virtual Care are your best options. Baptist Health Urgent Care locations are open seven days a week with extended hours, allowing you to get the care you need even if your primary care physician’s office is closed.
