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. But when health issues arise after hours, on weekends or during the holidays, visiting your primary provider may not be an option.
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 allergy, behavioral health, cardiology, ear, nose and throat, oncology, ophthalmology, orthopedics and podiatry.
