Senior Emergency Services

At Lovelace, we believe that seniors have earned the right to be treated with special attention. You’ll find the care you’ve earned at our Senior Care ER.


You’ll be welcomed by specially-trained geriatric emergency nurses dedicated to making you feel comfortable and safe. You’ll also find softer mattresses, better lighting, and quieter accommodations to make your time with us a lot easier. We even offer free valet parking so you won’t have to walk so far. Age does have its privileges at Lovelace. Special dedicated areas for treating senior patients are available at the Lovelace Medical Center and Lovelace Westside locations.
