Emergency Care

Emergency Room in Hermitage

If you're experiencing a medical emergency, call 911 immediately.

Each year, we proudly serve over 60,000 patients in Hermitage, Mt. Juliet, Lebanon and surrounding areas. Our team combines advanced training with compassionate service to be there for your family when you need it most.

What to Expect in the ER

As a patient, you will be cared for by board certified, emergency physicians who have the training to respond to any type of medical emergency that you or your family may experience, from the most serious life-threatening cases down to the minor everyday cuts and bruises. Our Emergency Room is also staffed with registered nurses who have been certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support.

Depending on the severity of your condition, our ER team will triage and direct you to the next steps in your care. We know that a visit to the ER can be stressful or even scary, so we want to make it as easy as possible to communicate and guide you through any situation.

Fast ER Wait Times

It's our goal to provide the best possible experience for our patients. That's why we strive to have an efficient process for diagnosing and treating you in the ER. Our wait times represent the average time it takes to be greeted by a qualified medical professional. They are a 4-hour rolling average updated every 30 minutes. Because every condition is unique, we will make every effort to update you on the status of your care during your visit.
