Extra Safety Measures for Your Protection
We’re employing the following safety measures and protocols to ensure you and your loved ones feel confident, protected and safe in our facilities.
Universal Mask Use
Even in a pandemic, you can feel safe. We’re stocked with safety supplies, and have the personal protective equipment (PPE) including masks for all patients, visitors and team members at our facilities.
Have peace of mind that everyone you come into contact with has their temperature checked upon arrival. Every facility. Every time.
Feel confident you’re doing the right thing to keep yourself and others safe. With limited visitation, new waiting room protocols and more, you can safely practice social distancing.
Take comfort knowing your safety is our priority. COVID-19-positive and symptomatic patients are carefully quarantined away from patients and visitors.
Enhanced Sanitation Measures
If you’ve visited our facilities in the past, you know that cleanliness has always been one of our top priorities. But now we’re taking extraordinary new steps to ensure thorough, frequent and ongoing sanitation measures are happening around the clock.

- When to Head to the Closest Emergency Room
How to Identify an Emergency and Visit the Closest ER
In an emergency, every second counts. But when you’re experiencing intense pain, difficulty breathing, or other serious medical issues, it can be hard to think clearly. That’s why it’s always best to err on the side of caution and go to the nearest emergency room. When you're having a medical emergency, call 911 so our paramedics can provide immediate help and bring you to our 24-hour ER. We've been recognized by the Georgia Region I EMS for outstanding first-responder services, which means we combine a high level of emergency medical care with a spotless track record and a focus on saving and improving lives.
Reasons for going to your closest ER include (but are not limited to):
- Complicated Fractures
- Deep Wounds
- Extreme Difficulty Breathing
- Head Injury
- Severe Allergic Reactions
- Severe Burns
- Suspected Heart Attack
- Suspected Stroke
- Vomiting or Coughing Up Blood
You deserve the fastest, most-experienced, and most-dependable emergency medical treatments. Count on us. We will always do everything in our power to help bring you relief and healing.
What to Expect When You Visit AdventHealth Gordon ER
Emergencies can be confusing. You'll probably have many questions about what's happening and why. If you don’t understand something, don’t hesitate to ask. And if you have a concern, please voice it. We’ll have some questions for you, too — because we need all the facts to give you safe, effective treatment. To start off, we’ll ask for basic things like your medical history and the reason for your visit.
We want to bring you relief as quickly as possible, so when you come to the ER at AdventHealth Gordon, formerly Gordon Hospital, we’ll have a nurse check your vital signs, then our specialized emergency room medical team will decide on the best way to care for you. If appropriate, we’ll help you fill out a registration form and discuss how we can help bring you healing. To bring you care faster, we offer bedside registration when appropriate.
It never hurts to be prepared, and you may want to consider keeping an information card in your wallet or purse. Some helpful information includes the name and number of your primary care physician, a list of medications and drug allergies, and advance directives like your health care proxy or the name of your power of attorney. The more we know, the better we can care for you.
- Urgent Care for Urgent Needs
For illnesses and injuries that are painful, but less urgent, such as minor injuries, strep throat or ear infections, our urgent care locations are ready to treat you and get you back on your feet. We accept most major insurance plans, helping you make your treatment less stressful. And to help you stay healthier, longer, we offer a range of preventive services, including flu shots, x-rays and physical exams. When you need us most, the team at AdventHealth will be there to help you get back to whole health.
Our local Urgent Care offices allow you to get the care you need for minor ailments, including:
- Asthma, allergies and hives
- Broken bones and sprains
- Cold, flu and common illnesses
- Disease management
- Elevated blood pressure
- Food poisoning
- Headaches and migraines
- Minor cuts and lacerations (on-site stitches available)
- Stomach and digestive conditions

- After Your Emergency Room Visit
Hopefully, your trip to the emergency room will be the only medical attention you'll need for a while. If your injury or condition requires further treatment, however, our care navigators will help connect you with follow-up care wherever you live. As part of our mission to provide whole-person care, we're here to not only heal your body. We want to help ease your mind and minister to your spirit, as well.
