Emergency Room

erOur full-service Emergency Room (ER) provides lifesaving care. Staffed with a specially-trained emergency medical team 24 hours a day and certified for level IV trauma care, we offer all ancillary services, including CT scan, x-ray and lab diagnostics. Featuring  privacy bays and trauma room, our ER is well-equipped. Our emergency care team includes a general surgeon, physicians, emergency medicine-specialized physician assistants and registered nurses.

TeleStroke and TeleCardiology programs, as well as partnerships with larger, specialized facilities ensure fast, professional care close to home. And when traumatic injury or life-threatening illness requires transfer to major regional medical center, we play an essential role in stabilizing patients and coordinating with those facilities before transport.
