If you have a life-threatening emergency, call 911 immediately. If you are not experiencing a life-threatening emergency, but need immediate and urgent medical attention, visit one of California Pacific Medical Center’s three 24-hour emergency rooms in the San Francisco area, open seven days a week.
Comprehensive 24-hour emergency rooms are available at the Davies Campus, the Mission Bernal Campus and the Van Ness Campus to treat severe illness and injuries. In addition:
The Davies emergency department is a Joint Commission Certified Primary Stroke Center.
