Emergency Care

Your emergency is our emergency

If you are having a medical emergency, please call 911

When the worst happens to you or your loved one, you want the best help there is in NOLA. With Lakeside Hospital’s Emergency Room (ER), you know you’re getting the best medical care around.

Our emergency department is staffed with experienced emergency care doctors, specially trained nurses, technicians, and other healthcare professionals who are here for you 24 hours a day—even on weekends and holidays. We use the latest technology and best practices to diagnose and treat whatever urgent illness or injury brought you to the ER. And because we work closely with the area’s ambulance services, you know you’re getting the best possible care even before you arrive at our doors.

We know that emergency rooms can be scary, especially for children and those who’ve experienced sexual assault. To help provide comfort and safety, we offer special services to address those needs through our pediatric emergency services and sexual assault nurse examiner program.
