How It Works…

The findERnow app uses the smartphone’s GPS to quickly locate the user’s current location and the distance to the closest emergency room (ER) anywhere within the United States. Users can select the closest ER or another nearby ER in a map or list format. Once selected, users are provided with 1-click access to directions to the ER as well as additional information about annual total ER visit volume, pediatric readiness, and specialty center verification status (i.e. a trauma, burn, or stroke center). Users also have the ability to search online for more information about the ER. Users can also search for ERs anywhere in the US by city and state, ZIP code, and by landmark (e.g., Fenway Park).

The findERnow app is ideal for travelers, especially those suffering chronic medical conditions, or those traveling with friends or relatives with health problems.
