Emergency Services at
St. Luke's Warren Hospital,
When a medical emergency strikes, you're in good hands with the Emergency Services physicians at St. Luke's Warren. Our highly trained emergency room doctors are ranked among the top 3 percent in the nation in terms of patient satisfaction and you have access to them around the clock.
Prescription and OTC Medications
It's very important to let the Emergency Services doctors know what drugs you have been prescribed as well as any over-the-counter medications you take on a regular basis. Herbs, vitamins, aspirins and prescription medications interact in ways that often cause dramatic reactions. In order to treat you most effectively, your doctors will need to know what you take routinely as well as what you have taken recently. Try to keep an updated list on hand for emergencies.
