As a state-of-the-art Level II Trauma Center, our Emergency Department treats approximately 76,000 people annually—experience that makes a real difference in a life-threatening emergency. Because every minute counts when it comes to heart attack and stroke, our cardiac interventional and neurointerventional teams are ready to treat patients with advanced technologies 24/7. Additionally, our pediatric emergency care includes on-site access to board-certified pediatric emergency doctors from Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.
Even in an emergency, your comfort and privacy are important to us. Our Emergency Department includes private rooms as well as specialty rooms for trauma, critical care, isolation and behavioral health—all staffed with board-certified emergency nurses and physicians.
Our Emergency Department has been recognized by the state of Illinois as an Emergency Department approved for treating children. The pediatric emergency staff is specially trained to care for children using child-sized equipment and following guidelines for weight-appropriate medications.
