Which one should you choose—the emergency room or urgent care? As we experience another surge of patients, our Emergency Department is always open but is extremely busy. We urge you to NOT visit the emergency department unless you’re experiencing critical symptoms. You should never delay any type of care—call 911 immediately if you are experiencing a life-threatening illness, chest pain, breathing difficulties, signs of stroke or severe injury.
As recommended by the CDC, children ages 5 to 11 can now receive Pfizer‘s COVID-19 vaccine. COVID-19 infections have risen dramatically among children in the US, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. The vaccine can help protect your children from hospitalization, death and lingering complications of COVID-19.
To provide a more long lasting protection from COVID-19, a third dose of the vaccine is recommended. The CDC now recommends the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine booster for all individuals 12 years of age and older.
Have you scheduled your family’s flu shots? The CDC recommends everyone six months and older get an annual flu shot. By getting the shot, you’re helping to lower the spread of flu-related illnesses, hospitalizations and even death. Call your primary care provider or check with your local pharmacy, to schedule your flu vaccination.

Join us in congratulating DAISY Award recipient Sarah Ireland, RN, who works in our Intensive Care Unit. The DAISY Award was created in honor of a man named Patrick Barnes, by his family, to recognize nurses who compassionately go above and beyond for a patient. Sarah was nominated by the daughter of a patient who was hospitalized for COVID-19. She wrote, “Sarah listened to my mom to help her through the sad and lonely times. Sarah’s excellent nursing care and compassion played a significant role in my mother’s recovery.” Fabulous work Sarah!
