Legacy's emergency services

Accidents happen. So does life. That's why Legacy Health is here for you every day. Our six round-the-clock ERs are close to wherever you live or work, with doctors and nurses who specialize in emergency care. And for less serious cases, we have fast-track rooms to treat you as quickly as possible.

Each Legacy hospital offers state-of-the-art diagnostic and laboratory services, including X-ray, CT, MRI and ultrasound. We also provide seamless access throughout the metro area to highly specialized Legacy services like trauma units, the Oregon Burn Center, Pediatric Intensive Care Units and much more.

All of which means that no matter what the emergency, from stitches to stroke, you can count on our rapid response, compassionate care and medical resources that can't be found anywhere else.

Fast-track care

The fast-track unit at each of our hospitals is designed to treat smaller health problems such as simple fractures and cuts or on-the-job injuries. By separating patients with critical needs, those patients with minor injuries or illnesses can be seen and treated more quickly. Hours of operation vary by site.

Children's emergency rooms

Some Legacy hospitals include a separate emergency room designed with kids in mind. And all of them have family-friendly waiting areas with age-appropriate books and toys. For the most challenging situations, young patients can be transferred directly to Randall Children's Hospital at Legacy Emanuel, which features a comprehensive network of specialists and a pediatric ICU.

When does a child need emergency care? The guidelines below can help. For extra peace of mind, fill out the consent form and leave it with your babysitter or temporary guardian, in case you're not available when your child needs emergency care.

Safety and Injury Prevention

Our award-winning injury prevention and awareness programs will help to keep you and your family safe and sound.
