The Bethesda Health Emergency Department is ready to care for you whether you are having a heart attack, if you think you are, or if you are experiencing any other type of cardiovascular emergency. Serving the Palm Beach county region, our Emergency Department is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Here you will receive safe, quality, compassionate care from a team of skilled emergency physicians and staff in a comfortable environment.
