Emergency Department

While nobody ever plans for an emergency, if one happens, choose the Mercy Emergency Department (ED). Mercy’s ED is staffed 24-hours a day, seven days a week by board-certified physicians, dedicated to healing mind, body, and spirit no matter who you are. Or where you come from.

Upon arrival at the ED, a registered nurse assesses every patient to determine treatment priority needs; treatment will be provided in either the main emergency department or our urgent care area, where we provide treatment for minor illnesses and injuries. All patients, whether they come in by ambulance or on their own, are triaged in the same way.


In addition to our ED at Mercy State Street, Mercy also offers non-emergency care at Gorham Crossing Express Care, Westbrook Express Care, Windham Express Care, Yarmouth Express Care and Express Care+ at Fore River.
