Pediatric Emergencies

You don’t have to look for the nearest children’s hospital in an emergency. Our emergency pediatric services at Framingham Union Hospital offer a new level of exceptional care, thanks to our partnership with Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center in Boston which brings advanced pediatric care, right here, every day of the week.

Pediatric emergencies get their own waiting room, and we strive to reduce the fear of our littlest patients so that we can help them view us as their friends and allies, while parents can rest a little easier that their child feels safe.

Heart Care

If you come into our ER having a heart attack, we are more prepared than other emergency departments to help you recover quickly. Our angioplasty team is alerted as soon as you arrive and you will be taken right to the cath lab for the procedure. The longer this process takes, the more muscle your heart will lose. Our door-to-balloon times and complication rates are some of the best in the state. 

If you believe you may be having a heart attack or any other life-threatening emergency, please call 911 immediately.

Low Wait Times

An unexpected fall or car accident can happen in the blink of an eye. But the last thing we want to do is leave you waiting for emergency care when you need it most.  We strive to keep our wait times low to get your crisis addressed as fast as it happened.

For your convenience, we post our current ER Wait Times on our website and on our FREE mobile app. To download our FREE mobile app and have Emergency Room Wait Times wherever and whenever you need them, click here
