We are a 23-bed emergency facility that includes two trauma rooms, two negative air pressure isolation rooms, and a decontamination suite equipped to handle emergencies from the area’s large industrial presence. Isolation technology allows us to keep our patients, and communities safe by containing the spread of infectious diseases or contaminants.

The ED is equipped to handle trauma, stroke, acute coronary syndrome, opioid overdoses, pediatrics, as well as any other medical emergency. We service the area by treating broken bones, diagnosing various illnesses, or helping alieve patients who may be experiencing pain. This includes helping patients and families seemingly transition to an inpatient admission, referral to a specialist, or a nearby transfer to a Tertiary Care Facility.
