findERnow app is the fastest, most reliable emergency room (ER) finder on the app market today. The findERnow app will locate the closest ER with just one click by using the most comprehensive national database available.
findERnow uses the iPhone’s GPS to quickly locate ERs anywhere in the U.S. You can select the closest ER or another nearby ER in a map or list format and can locate the closest ERs by driving time or by distance.
Once you select an ER, you have 1-click access to directions to the ER and additional information about annual ER visit volume and whether the hospital has a verified adult trauma, adult burn, or stroke center. Using the “EMS View” feature, you can also see whether an adult trauma or stroke center has advanced or basic capabilities. The “EMS View” feature is designed for Emergency Medical Services personnel, but it may be viewed by anyone interested in learning more about these capabilities. You also have the ability to search online for more information about the ER.
You can also quickly see if ERs are more likely to be prepared to provide emergency care for children, as these ERs are marked with a dark blue baby icon. You can also quickly access information about the % of annual visits from children, if the hospital has a verified pediatric trauma or pediatric burn center, if the ER has a separate pediatric area, and if the ER has pediatric emergency care coordinators.
findERnow is ideal for travelers, especially those suffering with chronic medical conditions, or those traveling with friends or relatives with health problems. Whether you are traveling or close to home, find the nearest ER quickly with findERnow!

Ratings and Reviews
As a paramedic making long distance transfers with critical patients this app has great potential. Please include phone numbers for the ER. Please include Helicopter availability.
In my area I found 1 stand alone ER(not attached to a hospital) that has been closed for 6 months and 2 free standing ER’s not indicated on map. Differentiating between hospital ER and stand alone ER would be nice..
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your kind words and feedback. It's challenging to find accurate, up-to-date national data for some characteristics, but we'll keep your suggestions of adding helicopter availability, phone numbers, and information about whether a facility is a hospital ER vs freestanding ER in mind as we look for ways to improve the app. Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to report a missing or closed ER, and we will update this information in the app immediately.
Absolutely Must Have
This app saves lives. We were on vacation in an unknown city far from home. A family member was having a serious allergic reaction to sunscreen. Breathing became difficult. This app showed us several ER’s in the area and we got to one and after being treated aggressively tragedy was avoided.
This has saved lives. All of our family members have it on their phones.
You’ll be glad you have it when you need it.
Better than Google!
This app is extremely useful. I love that it shows you all types of emergency facilities that are nearby, even those not attached to a hospital. It made me feel a lot safer traveling in areas of the US I have never been to before. This app shows the closest ED by driving time, which is sometimes a better gauge than distance.
