Emergency Services

If this is an emergency, call 9-1-1

At Kadlec Emergency Departments (EDs), patients are treated by providers who are certified in emergency medicine. Hospital and stand-alone EDs are set up to focus on medical emergencies, not routine health care.

You should go to the ED if a person or unborn baby has a life-threatening emergency, or could be permanently disabled from an illness or injury.

If you go to the ED for a problem that is not an emergency, it could cost more than going to a doctor's office or a walk-in clinic and may take longer to be seen. A trip to the ED for an earache, for example, may cost three to four times as much as it would at your doctor's office.
