We recognize that many people are uncertain about receiving care in a hospital during this time. We would like to reassure our patients and our community that patient safety is our top priority and we are taking every precaution necessary. Our Emergency Department and Urgent Care are safe to visit. Our goal is to keep everyone healthy, including our patients and our staff. This is why anyone that you encounter during your time here will be wearing a mask, as well as, other necessary personal protective equipment.
We have established and implemented thorough cleaning and disinfection protocols throughout of facility. Patients experiencing respiratory issues or with symptoms of COVID-19 will be placed in a designated area, separate from patients seeking care for other conditions.
The Emergency Department is staffed by physicians experienced in treating seriously ill and injured patients. Our emergency nurses are specially trained in emergency care and are certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Trauma Nursing. Air and ground ambulances are available for those needing a higher level of care.
In our emergency department, you will be seen by a triage nurse who will evaluate your condition, check your vital signs and ask about your health history. This process ensures that the most seriously ill and injured patients are seen first.
