Emergency and ConvenientCare Services

In case of a life-threatening illness or injury, Phoebe Emergency Centers are ready to provide care, 24/7, 365 days a year. Our five hospital Emergency Centers offer immediate treatment and prompt evaluation, stabilization and initial treatment of urgent medical problems.

The Emergency Centers utilize a triage system to help prioritize patients who require immediate or lifesaving care and treatment over those patients arriving with less serious injuries or illnesses. It is our goal to have everyone seen by a provider within a timely manner, but several factors may impact the wait times. Some of the reasons include: a high number of patients arriving at the same time, ambulance patients, seriously injured or ill patients who require numerous tests or procedures, and patients who need to be admitted to the hospital.  Persons with minor illnesses or injuries are encouraged to seek treatment at their physician's office or one of our ConvenientCare centers to help decrease the wait times.

For minor illnesses and injuries, there are two Phoebe ConvenientCare locations in Dougherty County. Each center is staffed by highly-qualified physicians, registered nurses and technologists trained to deliver urgent care to children and adults. No appointments are necessary and waiting is kept to a minimum.
