When should I go to the Emergency Department?*

HSHS St. Mary's Emergency Department (ED) St. Mary's Emergency Department (ED) is staffed around the clock by board certified emergency medicine physicians and registered nurses. Our registered nurses are Trauma Nurse Specialists and certified in Pediatric Advanced Life Support and Advanced Cardiac Life Support. Because of the competence of our skilled staff, St. Mary's Emergency Department has been designated by the State of Illinois as an Emergency Department Approved for Pediatrics.
In the Emergency Department, we try to work as quickly as possible while providing the highest quality care. In the event that you have arrived before another patient, if another patient's condition is more critical, the doctor will take care of him or her first. If you are asked to wait and start to feel worse or have pain, tell staff right away, so they can reassess you.
It's important to note that no one who comes to the Emergency Department will be turned away, regardless of their ability to pay or their insurance coverage.
