If you have a minor illness or injury in need of immediate care, the ER-7 Centers at Sinai and Northwest hospitals can treat you immediately. Patients receive the same quick and comprehensive service as those with more critical conditions.
Minor illnesses and injuries may include:
- Sore throats, coughs and colds
- Ear, sinus, urinary tract or yeast infections
- Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea
- Sprains, twisted ankles
- Cuts, lacerations or burns
Any other injuries that are not life- or limb-threatening can be treated.
The Rapid Evaluation Unit (REU) at Sinai Hospital provides timely care to patients suffering from lower activity needs such as sprains, sore throats, small cuts and similar conditions. The advantage of the REU is that it allows patients with minor illnesses and injuries to receive the same immediacy of attention and care as patients with more critical conditions.
The Rapid Evaluation Unit (REU) at Northwest Hospital offers immediate care to reduce emergency room waiting times for patients. Specialized health care providers quickly screen and direct patients to an appropriate care center upon arrival to the emergency department.
