Emergency Room and Hospitalization

Emergency and night call responsibility is shared by the all of the providers at Family Medical Group Northeast. This means someone is available seven days a week, 24 hours a day. If you need urgent or emergency care, please call our office 503-288-0083. After hours, your call will automatically be forwarded to our answering service. If you have an emergency which is severe or life threatening, call 911.

If necessary we admit our patients to Providence Portland Medical Center, located at 4805 NE Glisan Street (503-215-1111) or Legacy Emanuel Hospital, located at 2801 North Gantenbein (503-413-2200).

Your insurance plan may dictate which hospital is approved for use. Please check with your insurance carrier to find out which hospital your plan approved for you.

We utilize hospitalists when you are admitted to the hospital. Please ask either a family member, the emergency room doctor, or the doctor you see in the hospital to call us so we can follow your care during your hospital visit.

When possible, please call our office before going to the emergency room or urgent care. As your Patient Centered Primary Care Home, it is our desire to work with you and your family to provide high quality medical care at all times and help guide you during emergency and urgent situations.
