About The Emergency Medicine

When you face a medical emergency, Lee Health provides experienced and effective treatment, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

At Lee Health, experienced emergency physicians are specially trained to respond to medical emergencies. Our nurses are also skilled in emergency nursing care and are trained in advanced cardiac life support. Our qualified team of physicians and nurses provide care with the support of a 24-hour on-site lab, which includes computed tomography (CT) scans and X-ray services. After you go home, our nurses and physicians are available to answer questions about your emergency care and discharge instructions.

We are ready to deal with any and every emergency, from a broken ankle to trauma-related injuries from a motor vehicle accident.

When serious accidents happen, our Level II Trauma Center, located at Lee Memorial Hospital, is equipped to treat the most severe and life-threatening conditions.

Emergency Room or Urgent Care?

For an urgent, but non-life or limb-threatening health concern, convenient care is often a better alternative to the emergency room.

When to Go to the Emergency Room

The emergency department sees patients with conditions and injuries that need immediate attention. These may include:

  • Chest pain
  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Broken bones or dislocated joints
  • Facial lacerations
  • Deep skin abrasions or severe cuts requiring stitches
  • Vaginal bleeding with pregnancy
  • Fevers and rash
  • Head and eye injuries
  • Severe flu and cold symptoms
  • Sudden change in mental state

If you’re ever unsure about where to get the most appropriate level of care as quickly as possible, it’s generally best to go to the emergency department.

Trauma Center

The Lee Health Trauma Center at Lee Memorial Hospital is the only trauma center on Florida's Gulf Coast between Tampa and Miami. It is designated as a Level II Trauma Center by the state of Florida, treating patients who have received an injury that must be treated in a very narrow window of time in order for the patients to survive.

Convenient Care

Lee Health Convenient Care offers convenient walk-in medical services for minor emergencies and illnesses seven days per week. We provide prompt, high quality medical care for adults and children in a cost effective, comfortable environment.

Injury Prevention

Lee Health's Injury Prevention Program works with the Trauma Center to treat and prevent the most common and complex injuries. We work in the local community, educating clinicians and families and distributing safety materials. Lee Health's administers and supports many community initiatives designed to prevent injury at any age. We’re also conducting research to better understand how to prevent injury.
