Emergencies

An OB/GYN physician is always available 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year for medical emergencies. Please refer to the guide below should an emergency arise:

  • In an emergency, call 911 and go directly to the Emergency Department nearest you.
  • If an urgent issue arises and it is after normal office hours, call 651-770-3320. The operator will take your message and send it to the on-call doctor. We try to return these calls within 30 minutes of receiving them. If you do not get a call back in 30 minutes, call the operator once more. The on-call doctor may be busy taking care of patients in the hospital or currently in surgery and cannot answer the phone right away.
  • If you have a question and it is after normal office hours, but it is a question that can wait until normal office hours, call 651-770-3320 and leave a message. Our office staff will take your message, send it to your provider, and your provider will contact you to answer your question.
  • If you have a labor question or concern, you can also reach a hospital nurse at 651-232-7550 (St. John’s Hospital) or 651-232-0022 (Woodwinds Hospital).
