Acute Care

The Acute Care Department is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for those with serious, acute illnesses or injuries.  You should call your primary care department to speak with a nurse before coming to Acute Care. The nurse will give you home care advice or get you an appointment with your primary care team.  After hours and on weekends, call Acute Care directly. 

For life-threatening emergencies, immediately call 911.
