The Hospital is Safe!

Do not delay care if you need it. Many new policies are in place to ensure your health and safety when you come to Emerson Hospital, our urgent care centers or one of our practices. While you will notice some differences, such as all staff and visitors wearing masks, we continue to provide advanced medical care with a compassionate touch. Our visitor policy limits access to the hospital to protect our patients and staff.

In the videos below, physicians and staff take you through the patient experience when you visit Emerson Hospital or our related physician offices.

Telehealth is Available for You!

During this stressful time, it is important to take care of yourself. A telehealth visit is a convenient way for you to consult with your doctor without having to go to the office. There are certain situations or conditions that require an in-office visit, however many appointments can happen over the phone or with video chat. Most Emerson doctors are available for telehealth visits for your health and well-being, which many insurance plans will cover.
