If you are having a medical emergency, please call 911.
The Emergency Room (ER) at Tulane Medical Center and or at Tulane-Lakeside Hospital are the best places to go if the worst ever happens to you or your family. Your emergency is our emergency. And that's why our patients receive care from an experienced team of emergency physicians, specially trained nurses, technicians and other healthcare professionals within minutes of arriving through our doors.
The Emergency Services teams at Tulane offer emergency care 24 hours a day, and is staffed by Emergency Room physicians 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Employing the latest techniques and technology, Tulane works closely with the area’s ambulance services to ensure the best possible care, beginning even before patients arrive at the hospital so emergency physicians can plan for treatment even before arrival.
For non-life threatening medical problems, Tulane offers the convenience of checking emergency room wait times on the hospital website home page tulanehealthcare.com.
Tulane Medical Center offers on-the-go access to facility and medical information with the iTriage healthcare decision tool. iTriage allows patients to check symptoms; research diseases, procedures, tests and treatment; locate appropriate medical facilities nearby, and see real-time wait times in the ER; and connect patients to personal health records. This interactive technology available to Smartphone users is free and is currently available for download to iPhone® and Android™ users, and soon available as an application for Blackberry® and Palm® Smartphones. All other web-enabled devices can access iTriage at iTriageHealth.com.
