How to Identify an Emergency

In an emergency situation, it’s natural to feel shaken. You may wonder if you need medical care or if you’ll feel better naturally. But when the health of you or someone you love is at stake, don't hesitate. If you have sudden, intense pain or trouble breathing, or if you recognize the signs of stroke, heart attack, or a severe allergic reaction, call 911 or be driven to your nearest emergency room right away. Our AdventHealth Tampa emergency room treats many conditions, including:

  • Complicated Fractures
  • Deep Wounds
  • Extreme Difficulty Breathing
  • Major Head Injury
  • Poisoning
  • Severe Allergic Reactions
  • Severe Burns
  • Suspected Heart Attack
  • Suspected Stroke
  • Vomiting or Coughing Up Blood

What to Expect When You Visit Our Emergency Room AdventHealth Tampa

After our medical team has treated your immediate needs, we’ll help you register. We know you’ll have a lot of questions, and we’ll answer them all as patiently and thoughtfully as we can.

It never hurts to be prepared, and you may want to consider carrying an information card in your wallet or purse in case you’re ever faced with a medical emergency. Helpful information includes the name of your primary care physician, a list of your medications and drug allergies, and any advance directives you might have (like power of attorney or health proxy).

Helping Your Child Heal in a Friendly ER Environment

In our dedicated children's emergency room, your child can receive timely, compassionate emergency room care in a kid-friendly space.Every patient will see one of our board-certified emergency physicians who are specialists in pediatric care.

To create a child-friendly emergency room, and to distract your little one from his or her worries, we’ve transformed our children's waiting room into the deck of a pirate ship — complete with panoramic ocean views and soaring seagulls. Each of our private, pediatric treatment rooms features dim, colorful lighting and playful wall projections that you or your child can control. We know a medical emergency can be frightening, and we’re committed to providing high-quality emergency room care in a comfortable, friendly environment.

Urgent Care for Urgent Needs

While you should call 911 for a medical emergency, not all conditions require a trip to the closest emergency room. When you simply need care for minor ailments like hives, strains, and digestive conditions, you can visit one of our Urgent Care facilities. Your care always comes first, which means you won’t need to schedule an appointment before visiting your closest Urgent Care center. Our highly experienced medical staff treat a range of minor illnesses and injuries, including:

  • Allergic Reactions and Hives
  • Cold, Flu, and Common Illnesses
  • Cuts That Need Stitches
  • Disease Management
  • Minor Cuts (Onsite Stitches Available)
  • Rashes
  • Sprains, Strains, and Fractures
