Located on the corner of Whipple & Alameda, Redwood City

Sequoia Hospital’s Emergency Department ranks among the best in the Bay Area. Why?

  • Fast and accessible: We’re now offering our community the InQuicker Online Waiting Service which enables emergency department patients to check-in and wait at home for projected treatment times. To see the next available projected treatment time, please visit our home page.

  • Sequoia ranks among the fastest emergency cardiac care in California. The American Heart Association recommends that hospitals provide emergency heart care within 90 minutes of hospital arrival, and Sequoia Hospital has met these guidelines 100% of the time. On average, heart attack patients requiring emergency care are being treated in our catheter labs within 61 minutes of hospital arrival, dramatically improving their chances of surviving a heart attack.

  • The highest standard of Stroke Care. Sequoia received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s 2012 Get With The Guidelines®-Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award, which demonstrates Sequoia’s commitment and success in implementing a higher standard of stroke care by ensuring that stroke patients receive treatment according to nationally accepted standards and recommendations.

  • First adopter of new technology. Sequoia Hospital is the first in San Mateo County to implement Lifenet System. The new LIFENET System may reduce the door-to-flow time by up to ten additional minutes by sending a digital transmission of the patient’s ECG directly from the field to the hospital, allowing the ER to prepare the necessary team in advance of the patient’s arrival.

  • The best physicians and expert nurses dedicated to emergency care. Board Certified Emergency Medicine physicians are members of California Emergency Physicians Medical Group (CEP), the leading provider of staffing, management, and consulting services in California since 1975.

  • The Emergency Department is fully staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our family-oriented approach takes the extra steps necessary to provide a comfortable and caring environment. We work diligently to provide high quality, compassionate care to all patients.
