Our full-service Emergency department serves as a Level II Trauma Center with a dedicated Fast Track area. In 1999, the department was recognized by the Illinois Department of Public Health as an Emergency Department Approved for Pediatrics (EDAP).
Emergency Services is a specialized department designed to provide expert care to adults and children for everything from life-threatening medical and trauma conditions to minor injuries. It is staffed by physicians who are Board Certified in Emergency Medicine. All staff nurses are Certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support, and the majority are Certified Trauma Nurse Specialists.
With the aid of a telepresence robot, stroke patients at Gottlieb now can be examined remotely by world-class stroke specialists at Loyola University Health System in Maywood.
Gottlieb physicians will use the robot to work in close collaboration with Loyola doctors via a secure internet connection.
The robot is equipped with a microphone and a full-color, high-definition camera. The specialist can see, hear and talk to the patient and the patient's family, doctors and nurses. Test results and images such as CT scans can be instantly transmitted.
We provide a safe and secure atmosphere for children to receive emergency medical care, and we have the latest life-saving equipment stocked in age-appropriate sizes. Our staff nurses are Certified in Advanced Pediatric Life Support.
Our Fast Track service ensures that patients who have minor illnesses or injuries receive fast, efficient care. Fast Track is open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Our Emergency physicians and nurses are responsible for training and educating the local emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics for Bensenville, Elmwood Park, Franklin Park, Melrose Park, River Grove and Leyden Township.
We understand that visiting an Emergency department can be a frightening experience. That is why we are committed to ensuring that our customer service is as thorough as our emergency care.
Before patients leave the Emergency department, they receive detailed instructions about what they should do at home. Follow-up calls are made by emergency department staff nurses.
