The emergency department is opened for 24 hours, 365 days a year, capable of handling all types of emergencies. We specialize in acute care of patients who come without prior appointment. The department provides initial treatment for a broad spectrum of illnesses and injuries, some of which may be life-threatening and require immediate attention. Patients frequently arrive with unstable conditions, and so must be treated quickly. A team of dedicated medical, nursing and paramedical staff are trained to work quickly. On arrival at the Emergency Department each patient's condition is prioritized, typically by nurses and doctors on triage basis.
