We recognize that emergencies are often stressful situations. That’s why we take pride in ensuring your visit to the Emergency room at Banner – University Medical Center South goes as smoothly as possible. Our Emergency department is designed so you can receive care as quickly as possible.
The triage process helps determine the severity of the patient’s condition to assure that the most urgent patients are seen by a health care provider first. As in most hospital emergency rooms across the country, patients receive treatment based on the severity of their emergency, not the order of arrival.
Communication plays a key role in your successful treatment in the Emergency department. Language and interpretive services are available at all Banner facilities; please ask your nurse or Emergency department receptionist about them.
Located next to the South campus, we provide emergency treatment for adults and children suffering mental or behavioral crises. Specially designed emergency treatment rooms for crisis stabilization are separate from the regular emergency rooms.
The partnership between Banner Health and the University of Arizona brings clinical care delivery, education and research to the forefront of the patient experience.
