Emergency Department

Our Emergency Department (ED) provides emergency care for critically ill and seriously injured people. We also provide nonemergent care for illness and injury 24 hours a day. The emergency department features four beds as well as two specialized trauma rooms equipped to care for critically ill patients and those with life-threatening emergencies.

When you first enter the ED there is a triage process. A specially trained registered nurse will assess your symptoms to determine the severity of your medical problem. Life-threatening and critical injuries will be treated first.

Every effort is made to give prompt care to every patient. However, our staff often attends to multiple patients at any given time, and your wait may be longer than expected. Your needs will be attended to with the same attention as others, as quickly as possible.

If you have concerns, comments or compliments about your ED experience, please contact us.
