Emergency Department Services
Because of our commitment to the health of the community, no patient is ever turned away from the Emergency Department for any reason. Patients of all ages, including infants and children, with all types of injuries and illnesses are treated.
The Emergency Department provides an environment where professional nurses and physicians can diagnose, plan, implement, and evaluate care for the patient who needs treatment. The care rendered ranges from non-emergency, non-urgent needs to life-threatening complications from medical or traumatic origin. Your treatment will also include patient safety, education and discharge planning.
For the most serious injuries and illnesses that require transfer to a major medical center or specialty hospital, an Advanced Life Support ambulance and helicopter are readily available.
Ancillary services such as radiology, cardiopulmonary and lab are available as needed around the clock to aid the physician in diagnosing and treating your condition. The Emergency Department is equipped with state-of-the-art heart monitoring and airway equipment.
Caring for the Community
Medical emergencies develop unexpectedly. Not only are they confusing and stressful, but they demand immediate attention.
Upon arrival you will be taken directly back to an available exam room where a nurse will evaluate you to determine if there are any immediate needs or life-threatening conditions. If a room is not available immediately, a nurse will triage you shortly to determine the extent of your illness or injury. Registration staff will come to the exam room to obtain the necessary information. Shortly after arrival, you will be seen by a physician.
The Emergency Department cares for patients facing life-threatening situations every day and it is an honor to be trusted with the care of your family.
An experienced emergency physician is on duty 24 hours a day. The physicians are trained in Basic Life Support, Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Advanced Trauma Life Support, and Pediatric Advanced Life Support.
