The Emergency Department at UPMC Presbyterian provides the best possible 24/7 emergency care throughout the Pittsburgh region — no matter what time of day, or how complex the illness or injury.
Our 44-bed Emergency Department offers:
If you think you’ve been exposed to COVID-19 and have only mild symptoms – and you do not have difficulty breathing – you can schedule a COVID-19 test at a designated test location. The Emergency Department is NOT the place to get a COVID-19 test UNLESS you are experiencing breathing problems or other severe symptoms.
Going to an Emergency Department with mild or no symptoms may create a long wait time for you to be seen and COVID-19 test results do not come back more quickly – they still will take one, two, or more days.
For a medical emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. For immediate help with a psychological crisis, including suicidal thoughts, call 800-273-8255 or text 741741.
