Emergency

Care When You Need It Most

Medical emergencies happen when we least expect them. So it’s comforting to know there’s a professional medical team trained to respond at a moment’s notice right in your community.

Westlake Hospital’s Emergency Department (ED) has been providing emergency care to the western suburbs for over eight decades. During those years, the department has grown and continuously adapted to meet the needs of our changing community. Today, the newly remodeled ED features all private treatment areas, with advanced technology to making diagnosing, monitoring and providing treatment more accurate and efficient. All of our ED doctors are board-eligible or board-certified in emergency medicine. Working together, our entire care team is committed to providing you with the quality care you deserve.
