Any time, day or night, we're ready to help you in a medical emergency. Our teams of emergency medicine doctors, specialists and specialty-trained nurses, technicians, pharmacists, care managers and others work together to provide lifesaving treatments and personal care. It is our goal to calm your stress, take care of you and your loved ones and support you after you leave.
Getting to the ER
If you have a serious or life-threatening emergency, call 911 immediately. Trained professionals can then begin treatment right away, even before you reach the hospital, and prepare the ER team for your arrival.
At times you may need a higher level of care than is available in your local ER. That’s when you can rely on our resources and partnerships to get you quickly to the right experts within the hospital, at another SCL Health facility or anywhere you need to receive appropriate care.
Services for every emergency, illness and injury
Holy Rosary can get you the right care wherever and whenever you need it. The emergency room is the best fit for illness or injuries requiring immediate care or for complex medical emergencies. Walk-in care or a same-day visit with your own doctor are convenient and cost-saving options for less critical conditions.

What to expect when you visit the ER
When you arrive in the ER, you’ll be assessed by a member of our emergency care staff so we can learn about your injury or illness. Following this assessment, you’ll check in at our registration desk to provide any information we need to treat you, like ordering appropriate tests. The severity of your injury or illness will determine the order in which you’re seen by ER staff.

Medical and flight transport
Should you need more advanced emergency care, we may transfer you to another facility, either by ambulance service or air. Specially trained teams accompany you during transport, attending to your medical needs and communicating with the receiving hospital to ensure they’re prepared for your arrival. Team members may include flight nurses, paramedics, respiratory therapists and nurses with advanced training in caring for pregnant women and newborns needing critical emergency care.
