What to Expect

A trip to the Emergency Department can be confusing and even frightening - especially if it's the first time. Here is some information about McLaren Thumb Region's Emergency Department.

Upon arrival, you will be seen by a triage nurse who will assess your condition and determine the level of care you will likely need. Patients who have a critical or life-threatening illness or injury are treated immediately.

We attempt to see every patient as quickly as we can. We do not care for patients on a "first come, first served" basis.  Patients who arrive after you may be taken in from the waiting room before you based on the severity of their illness.

If, during your visit, you feel that your complaint has worsened, please see the triage nurse.
