Emergencies & Hospitalizations

Have an Emergency? Call us First!

If you believe you need after hours care or may need to go to the emergency room, please contact Greenhouse Internists first:

Call the office (215-242-5000) to notify us of your problem. There is always a provider on call after office hours or when the office is closed to assist you. Your provider can decide if the problem is less severe and if it can be treated over the phone until the office opens the next business day, possibly saving you time and the expense of the emergency room.

If you go to the emergency room

Call our office to let us know and we can contact the emergency room on your behalf and provide the ER providers your complete medical history. Provide the ER staff the name of your provider at Greenhouse so they can request your medical history and update us on their findings and recommendations. Once you are discharged from the ER, please contact the office to arrange follow up care as soon as possible.

If you are admitted to the hospital

Please call us (or have a trusted family member or friend call us) within 24 hours to notify us of your admission. Once you are discharged from the hospital, please contact the office to arrange a follow-up appointment as soon as possible. We will assist you in arranging appropriate follow-up care.
