Emergency Services

When you need help in a hurry, you'll find expert emergency care from HonorHealth in your neighborhood. All six of our medical centers and our HonorHealth Complete Care locations operate 24-hour emergency departments to serve patients of all ages, and handle cases ranging from illnesses and minor injuries to major medical emergencies, trauma and stroke. Throughout the Valley, our emergency centers are equipped with the technologies and talented, compassionate clinical staff to handle medical emergencies large and small.

Level I Trauma Centers

Following a severe injury, every minute counts — and the chance of survival is greatest if treatment is given within the first hour of the injury. Three HonorHealth emergency departments are Level I trauma centers, which is the highest designation by the American College of Surgeons.

Pediatric Emergency Center

While all HonorHealth emergency departments serve patients of all ages, if your child has a medical emergency, HonorHealth Scottsdale Shea Medical Center has a team of pediatric-certified emergency room physicians and nurses who provide high-quality care. Designed to take the “scary” out of a hospital experience, our leading-edge technology and medical equipment are made with younger patients in mind.

HonorHealth Scottsdale Shea Medical Center is just east of Loop 101 at Shea Boulevard and 90th Street.

Please note: HonorHealth Scottsdale Shea Medical Center is undergoing multiple renovations through 2025 to continue providing our community with high-quality care. Our Emergency Department and other hospital services remain open during the renovation. Families with children can enter through the main entrance and use the hospital’s main ED check-in and waiting room.

Unsure as to whether you need emergency or urgent care? Now you don't have to decide. HonorHealth Complete Care is a full-service emergency room and urgent care under one roof that takes the guesswork out of where you should go to seek care when you aren’t feeling well or are injured.
