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.
Our ED is staffed around the clock, 365 days a year by physicians, nurse
practitioners, physician assistants, and nurses to tend to your emergent
health care needs. We have aligned our ED services with providers dedicated
to continually maintaining and improving on the positive patient experience

companies in the region, and their response times are less than 15 minutes
