Find Guidance through Care Navigation

We want to do more than just help you feel better — we want to support you fully as you heal. That’s why our ER Navigators meet with every patient to bridge the gap from emergency room to home and beyond. They’re here to connect you with resources, make sure you have a primary care physician and make follow-up calls to ensure you’re getting the care you need once you leave the ER.

Here for Your Behavioral Health Needs

We know that not every medical emergency is about your physical health. In behavioral health emergencies — including trauma, suicidal ideation, depression, panic and anxiety, drug addiction, bipolar disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, grief and loss, eating disorders and more — our compassionate and experienced health care providers are here for you. If you or a family member comes to our ER in a behavioral health crisis, we’ll connect you with the inpatient or outpatient care you need as quickly as possible.
