Together they answer questions about how our ER is prepared to provide high-quality and safe care for all patients. Highlights include:

  • What to do before you go to the hospital
  • How the hospital is prepared to keep everyone safe
  • Why COVID-19 shouldn't stop you from going to the ER for other emergencies
