Emergency Department at Somerset Campus


undefinedFrom the moment you walk through the revolving door into its hotel-like lobby, you know this isn’t like the Emergency Department you remember. Someone greets you at the door and asks your name and information about your condition. You spend the next few minutes meeting with a nurse in a private interview room to explain more about your symptoms. The nurse decides that your illness is not life-threatening and takes you to an Express Care area that’s just for patients with minor ailments. Instead of stretchers of patients separated by curtains, you find spacious private rooms with a TV and phone in each room. This area has its own doctors and nurses so you don’t have to wait to be seen until after doctors are finished caring for patients with more serious health problems. Laboratory and X-ray services just down the hall help doctors diagnose your problem quickly – and get you on your way quickly, too.

The Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset Emergency Department has revolutionized the delivery of emergency care. At 40,000 square feet, making it one of the largest, best-equipped emergency departments in the state.

Our Staff
