Get quality care when you need it most.

If you are having chest pains or experiencing a medical emergency, call 911 immediately for assistance. In a medical emergency, time can be the critical factor. Go to the emergency room if you or your loved one experiences any of the following:

  • Significant bleeding
  • Trouble breathing
  • Significant head trauma
  • Major injuries from accidents
  • Chest pain
  • Stroke symptoms
  • Choking
  • Ingesting poison
  • Broken bones
  • Any sudden or rapid changes to your health

When Appropriate, Choose Immediate Care

If symptoms don’t seem severe, but you need medical care faster than an appointment can provide, Hancock Health offers immediate care. See our immediate care center for any of the following:

  • Minor cuts, scrapes, and bruises
  • Minor swelling, aches, and pains
  • Ear infections
  • Cold symptoms (coughing, sore throat, fever)
  • Flu symptoms (nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea)
  • Sprains and minor injuries

Some illnesses and injuries obviously call for emergency care, but some are not so obvious. Trust your instincts and listen to your body when making your decision.
