Emergency Care

Heritage Valley Health System emergency departments serve residents who are critically ill or seriously injured and are located at our hospitals in Beaver, Kennedy Township and Sewickley. 

When you arrive at the emergency department, a member of our staff will evaluate your condition. Patients who are the most acutely ill and injured will be seen first.

For registration, you or your family member will need to give information about you, your doctor, employment and health insurance. Some types of health insurance require that you alert your primary care physician within a certain time frame that you were treated in the emergency department. A consent for care for children should be signed by a parent or legal guardian.

Every effort is made to provide prompt care. Other patients may be treated ahead of you because of their condition. Procedures such as X-rays and blood tests take time. The cooperation and patience of your loved ones are greatly appreciated.
