Emergency Services at Shoreline Medical Center
The Shoreline Medical Center offers a full complement of emergency services – 24 hours a day, seven days a week – provided by board–certified emergency physicians and other clinical personnel. There are 12 emergency treatment rooms, with two of these rooms dedicated to critical patients. An Express Care area also serves patients with non–life–threatening but urgent medical needs.
There are also isolation and decontamination areas in the Emergency Department and a helipad on site for LIFE STAR medical helicopter transports.
Designed for injuries and illnesses that are urgent, but not life-threatening, Express Care is staffed by physician assistants, nurse practitioners and emergency nurses. Call us for current hours of operation.
Middlesex Hospital paramedics are based in our Essex Emergency Department, and on call around the clock to begin treatment at the scene of critical emergencies.
