If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all of your medical options, including the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments available.

Emergency Department 

No one wants to visit the Emergency Room (ER), but we do everything we can at Emory Johns Creek Hospital’s Emergency Department (ED) to make the visit feel as comfortable and transparent as possible. For example, our ED features a child-friendly waiting room with a Wii available for children to play. We also involve patients and families in care decision-making and we know our ED patients need the support of friends and family, so we don’t have any visitation “rules.”

The Emory Johns Creek Hospital Emergency Department features advanced technology allowing our team to operate at a high level of performance and efficiency. This technology gives us the ability to receive EKGs from the field and also to diagnose STEMIs (a deadly type of heart attack) and activate a cardiac catheterization team before incoming patients arrive. We can also page Code STEMI and Code Strokes before patients arrive to get those caregivers in place and ready to receive the incoming patient. Learn more >>
