If you're a patient with a minor illness or injury in need of immediate care, Sinai and Northwest Hospital ER-7 centers can treat you immediately. Patients receive the same quick and comprehensive service as those with more critical conditions.
Minor illnesses and injuries include:
- Sore throats
- Ear infections
- Twisted ankles
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 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.
