What Type of Appointment Do I Need?

When health concerns arise, it is best to contact your primary care provider, who can then direct you on the best course of action. When you are unable to schedule with your primary care provider, we offer same day appointments to treat minor illnesses and injuries that are not life-threatening, but require prompt medical attention.

While not every illness or injury requires a trip to the emergency room (ER), there are times when emergency services are needed. Emergency rooms are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You should seek emergency care for limb- or life-threatening conditions, including intense chest pain, profuse bleeding, difficulty breathing, severe headaches, seizures lasting longer than five minutes, intense abdominal pain and other serious medical issues.

Specialty services available at Guttenberg Municipal Hospital include general surgery, behavioral health, cardiology, ear, nose and throat, dermatology, ophthalmology, orthopedics and podiatry.
