Emergency Care

If you are having a medical emergency, dial 911.

Emergency illness and injuries can be both frenzied and frightening. So when the unexpected occurs and every minute matters, it's important to have support close by that you can count on.

Cape Regional Health System's emergency department is a leader in emergency care in Cape May County. Our priority is providing immediate, coordinated care to stabilize patients and help them get back to their everyday lives.

With expertise from both general practitioners and specialists, our 24-hour emergency room (ER) is prepared to deal with critical injuries as well as minor illnesses in both adults and children.

And in our ER, you'll always be treated like a person—not a number.
