Emergency Visits

Always open, Shore Medical Center’s Emergency Department is staffed with board-certified physicians and specialized nurses to meet both severe and minor emergency needs. Our rooftop helipad is available for the emergency airlifting of patients to and from the hospital for specialized trauma treatment. 

Patients are seen based on the nature of their medical complaint. Those with the most serious or life threatening problems will be seen first. While it is difficult to prepare for an emergency visit there are a few things you can do that will assist in your care.

Please bring with you the following items:

  • Identification such as driver license
  • Insurance card(s)
  • List of current medications and dosage (or the medications themselves)

Our primary concern is to provide you with the medical care needed. The hospital accepts all patients regardless of ability to pay.
