If you need to go to the emergency room and it is not life and death situation, then I would suggest Upper Chesapeake Health System. They are okay for minor emergencies but I would not trust them in a major emergency. I went to this hospital and it was nine hours later when I got out. In that amount of time I saw a doctor twice. Considering it was a major medical emergency, the lack of attention given was unacceptable to say the least. I will say that the staff was understanding and very apologetic. So if you do go to this hospital, I hope all goes well for you, for me , it was not worth the wait.
