When to go to the ER

An emergency room is not a replacement for your primary care doctor. An ER should be used in the event of a medical emergency. A medical emergency is, put simply, a potentially life-threatening situation. West Valley also has an intensive care unit (ICU) staffed 24/7 with physicians specially trained to care for critically ill patients.
