Emergency Department & Urgent care

  • WestHealth-ER-Urgent-care

    The combined Emergency Department and Urgent Care at WestHealth is open 24 hours a day.

    • The emergency department is staffed by Abbott Northwestern Hospital Emergency Physicians.
    • The urgent care is staffed by urgent care physicians and physician assistants.
    • Pediatric emergency physicians and nurse practitioners from Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota are also on staff seven evenings a week.

    We do not perform sports physicals, return to work or fitness for duty assessments. Please contact your primary care provider if you require one of these services.

    Patients are not able to select whether they are seen as an urgent care patient or an emergency department patient. All patients receive a screening evaluation to determine the appropriate level of care.
