Emergencies and Urgent Care
In case of a life-threatening emergency
Call 911, or go directly to the nearest hospital emergency room for immediate medical attention.
Notify your Dartmouth-Hitchcock family doctor (primary care provider, or PCP) as soon as possible.
For conditions that are not life-threatening
Please call your doctor's office. See Phone Numbers by Department if you need the number. Nurses in your doctor's office can determine the medical urgency of your condition, offer home care advice, or schedule an appointment.
