Emergency Services Treatment

Complete Care During Your Visit

You get more in University Hospital’s Emergency Department. More care and more convenience. Instead of a sling for your broken arm with instructions to see an orthopedic specialist, you see the orthopedic specialist while you’re here. Instead of a prescription and directions to a lab for a test on Monday, we perform the test in the Emergency Department. We want to address whatever ails you while you’re with us.

Every patient gets complete care in a single visit.

If you or someone you love is sexually assaulted, our registered nurses in the Emergency Department will perform specialized exams. A sexual assault nurse examiner performs additional testing and collects evidence.

As a Level I Trauma Center, we refer patients who have been sexually assaulted to a qualified, compassionate sexual assault nurse examiner:
