When should you visit the ER?

It isn’t always easy to know when you truly need to visit the Emergency Room.

Emergency Room visits are more expensive than urgent care or visiting a primary care physician due to the resources and level of training that is available there 24/7. Often patients visit the ER when their time and money could be spent much more wisely at urgent care or simply by waiting and visiting their primary care physician.

Meet the GCGH Nursing Supervisors!

If you visit the ER, you may find a GCGH nursing supervisor helping to coordinate staffing and patient care.
