Mass General’s Emergency Department (ED), now located on the first floor of the Lunder Building, is a full-service, state-of-the-art facility equipped to handle any adult or pediatric medical emergency.

When you arrive, experienced and skilled triage nurses review your symptoms, medical history and vital signs to begin to determine the nature and urgency of your condition and the best treatment area for your needs.

We treat patients as soon as possible based on the severity of their condition. We will do our best to reduce your wait time and to reassess and monitor your condition. If your symptoms change or you have questions, please contact a nurse.
