Emergency Services at Chestnut Hill Hospital
Chestnut Hill Hospital Emergency Department (ED) offers 24-hour emergency services and is staffed by medical professionals with experience in emergency medicine.
Because patients with the greatest need must receive immediate care, a registered nurse will assess all patients and prioritize them on the basis of need, not on the order of arrival.
Our doctors specialize in emergency medicine, caring for patients with acute illnesses or injuries which require immediate medical attention. Once the emergency is resolved, we recommend you follow up with your primary care doctor to assess your overall health.
A primary care doctor
doctor enhances your overall long-term health by managing your care over an extended period of time, called continuity of care. If non-urgent conditions are treated routinely in the ED, your primary care doctor may not have all the necessary information to ensure your continuity of care.
