When emergencies happen, it's comforting to know you can trust Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center to deliver the lightning-fast, leading-care you need. As an Illinois-designated Level II Trauma Center, we diagnose and treat nearly 700,000 patients in Joliet each year with all types of emergencies and critical injuries. Our specially trained emergency physician and nursing teams are available around the clock—ready to get you in, treated and back to your life.
Our Emergency Room is located at:
333 North Madison Street
Joliet, IL 60435
If you’re experiencing a medical emergency, call 911 immediately.
Upon your arrival, you’ll immediately be assessed by a skilled triage nurse to assess the severity of your condition. If your needs are critical or life-threatening, we’ll expedite your care—including anytime access to general surgeons, plus coverage by specialists in critical care, orthopedics, neurology, anesthesiology, emergency medicine, radiology and more.
51 percent of our nurses are trauma specialists, including certification in advanced cardiac life support—a statistic that significantly exceeds requirements of the Illinois Department of Public Health.
Our emergency teams are backed by the most sophisticated critical care technology available to quickly assess and diagnose your condition, including digitized radiography, a filmless process that produces images on a computer monitor within seconds after the X-ray is taken.
If you’re experiencing the symptoms of a heart attack, count on care that’s been fully recognized by the Society of Chest Pain Centers and Providers (SCPC). We earned this distinction—awarded to only 5% of hospitals nationwide—by delivering rapid and highly coordinated care during the early stages of a cardiac event, when treatment is critical to saving lives and preserving heart muscle.
In addition to providing expert medical care, we offer 24/7 pastoral care to address the emotional and spiritual needs of you and your family.
