We are here to help you find what you need.
Saint Anne’s Hospital’s Emergency Room Department, a 13,000-square-foot facility opened in 2011, offers advanced technology and 24-hour emergency care for patients of all ages.

"Within 15 minutes of arriving at Saint Anne's ER, I had already registered, been triaged, met my tech and RN, seen the physician assistant, and was medicated. Incredulous. ... My doctor is, without a doubt, in the right profession, and I was completely honored to have him as my attending ER physicians. ... No ambiguity here - my care was excellent by all those involved with me as their patient. ... Saint Anne's should be extremely proud to have all of the employees choosing Saint Anne's for their employer."
