Emergency Department

At JFK Medical Center, we are committed to providing qualified, compassionate care with state-of-the-art technology and emergency services to our community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

What happens when you get to the ER?

Everyone’s journey will be different. A major goal of the emergency department at JFK Medical Center is to reduce wait times. We want to get patients from the door to an available bed, as quickly as possible.

Upon arrival to the Emergency Department you will be greeted and provided with a Care Passport, a personalized document to keep you informed and involved. The Passport will outline your plan of care during your ED stay and serve as a reference guide to find team members names and contact information.

We understand, no one looks forward to an emergency department visit. We realize, you are here because you need immediate medical attention. We want what you want, to provide you with safe and high quality care.

After your Visit to the ED

You are now prepared to return home. Below is a checklist to help ensure that your transition and recovery go well:

  • Review and follow your care and discharge instructions
  • Fill any prescriptions that were given to you by the emergency care team
  • Make sure you schedule any follow-up care visits that were recommended
  • Take your discharge folder and information with you to your next doctor’s appointment

If your symptoms or condition persist or worsen, call your primary care physician. If you have questions regarding your emergency medical care, please call 732-321-7601.
