  • Emergency Services

  • Your Arrival

  • When you first arrive, you will be met by some of our most experienced nurses. You will be asked several brief questions and have your vital signs taken. This will allow us to quickly assess the degree of your medical condition and ensure that urgent treatment, tests and medications are given. This process, called “triage,” ensures that patients with the most serious medical problems are treated first.

    Because the center staff needs to be aware of your medical background, they will ask you many questions. Questions will often be asked by more than one center staff member.

    You are the most important member of your health care team! Please be sure to let our staff know about:

    • Health problems you currently have or have had in the past
    • Prescribed and/or over-the-counter drugs you are taking
    • Any allergies you have
    • Recent trips you have taken outside of the United States
    • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding
