Emergency Care When and Where You Need It

As the world around us changes, at least one thing stays the same – our commitment to your health. If you come to our hospital for an emergency or a necessary surgery, know that we have extra precautions in place for your safety.

We stay at work for your emergencies. So DON’T stay home if you have signs of a heart attack such as chest pain or difficulty breathing. Call 911 for signs of a stroke, too – weakness or drooping on one side of your face and/or one arm, slurred speech. Every second counts. Your safe care is our priority.

You can find out more about our current safety protocols in place at our Baptist Health System hospital emergency departments.

During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic at Baptist Health emergency departments, you can expect we are:

  • Evaluating patients and teams when entering the hospital
  • Keeping potential COVID-19 patients separated from other patients
  • Increasing precautions for infection prevention
  • Wearing masks and other protective gear to prevent contact and spread of germs
