Freestanding vs Hospital ER

So Many Choices — Why Emergis?

For true medical emergencies that require immediate attention, emergency rooms are the best choice for patients.

Unlike urgent care facilities, freestanding emergency centers are required to be staffed 24/7 with ER-trained physicians and equipped to treat high acuity patients.

The following life-threatening illnesses and injuries would warrant a trip to the ER:

Heart attack or stroke

Open fractures

Severe bleeding

Severe burns

Chest pain

Head injury or other major trauma

One-sided weakness or numbness

Loss of consciousness

Severe abdominal pain

Animal bites
