It's not always clear whether an injury or illness calls for a trip to the Emergency Department. Some symptoms you should not ignore include:

  • Chest Pain
  • Difficulty Breathing
  • Blacking Out/Weakness
  • Slurred Speech
  • Changes in Vision
  • Changes in Mental Status
  • Sudden/Severe Pain
  • Uncontrollable Bleeding
  • Coughing/Vomiting Blood
  • Suicidal Feelings

Our ER is always open and ready to provide care. Understand, however, that a trip to the ER usually takes longer and costs more than a visit to a doctor's office. If you do not have a primary care physician, we strongly recommend you find one. Call 1.855.88.SJMED or click here to Find a Doctor. In addition, we offer care for minor illnesses and injuries in through a joint partnership with Physicians Urgent Care, one of the largest occupational medicine and urgent care providers in the Midwest. Learn more about Urgent Care.

After-Care Instructions

When you're ready to leave the Emergency Department, you'll be given after-care instructions either in your treatment room or in the discharge room. These instructions will include your ER physician's name, the name of the doctor you should see for follow-up care, your diagnosis and specific recommendations.

ED charges are based on the seriousness of your condition and the amount of time spent providing your care. You'll be asked to sign a financial agreement at discharge. Other physicians involved in your care, such as the radiologist who reads your X-ray, will send you separate bills for their work. For more information on billing click here.
