Urgent care doctors

After Hours and Urgent Care

A NEMS provider is on-call 24 hours a day to advise you; please call us at 415-391-9686 or 650-550-3923 or 408-573-9686. If your medical condition is an emergency condition, the provider will instruct you to go to the nearest emergency room or your designated hospital.

NEMS physicians have hospital privileges at select hospitals, should you need hospitalization. If you are admitted to a hospital outside of the NEMS network, you will be treated by a non-NEMS physician. In some cases, you may be treated by a hospitalist, a doctor who oversees your care at the hospital.


Hospital emergency rooms are set up to handle severe and life-threatening cases. Some examples of an emergency are when someone is:

  • Unable to breathe
  • Unconscious
  • Bleeding heavily
  • Paralyzed
  • In extreme pain

In this situation, please ask the hospital to notify your NEMS primary care provider.

NEMS does not cover the cost of hospital emergency room or inpatient expenses at hospitals, nursing homes, etc. Contact your health plan or health insurance company for coverage conditions if you incur emergency room or inpatient expenses.
