Emergency

Life is unpredictable, so in an emergency, you want to feel confident in the care you and your family will get in your local emergency room.

If you live in one of our communities, you can take comfort knowing Banner Health offers a variety of emergency care services, from treatment of minor illnesses and injuries to urgent care and comprehensive trauma care.

Our Emergency departments feature health care providers, specialty-trained nurses and support staff who are well equipped to diagnose and treat your specific injury or illness.

Get the Care You Need

Our Emergency department is required by the Federal Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) to medically screen each patient to determine his or her need for emergency medical treatment. If you have an emergency medical condition or are in active labor, EMTALA mandates that the medical center provide stabilizing care within its capabilities regardless of your ability to pay.

Urgent Care and same-day care can be a good alternative to Emergency department care. You can visit Urgent Care if you have an immediate medical need and can’t get in to see your regular doctor or for the treatment of:

  • Bumps
  • Sprains
  • Flu symptoms
  • General wound care
  • Fever
  • Animal bites
  • Mild asthma
  • Rash
  • Sore throat
