Our Emergency Services

Our emergency room treats illnesses ranging from broken bones to life-threatening injuries — all delivered by specially trained emergency staff. Our emergency doctors are board-certified and provide a variety of on-call specialties. We offer three distinct services to best meet your needs:

Fast Track: Designed to provide rapid care for non-life threatening illnesses and injuries, fast track services are available seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Emergency: We have the equipment and services to treat stable, urgent and emergent illnesses and injuries at any time.

Trauma Center: Our Trauma Center provides specialized emergency resuscitation, and diagnostic, surgical and critical care services for immediate response for seriously injured patients.

Once your emergency care is complete, we can connect you with a primary care doctor or specialists to help manage your ongoing care. If you have questions about emergency services at Hahnemann, please feel free to contact us at 215-762-7000.
