Emergency care

Emergency care is provided 24 hours a day by physicians and registered nurses who are specially trained in advanced cardiac life support and trauma care. Patients of all ages are seen and treated.

On the rare occasion that a patient with critical illnesses needs specialized treatment not available here, they will be stabilized and transferred to a larger medical or tertiary center. Others will be treated in the emergency department and admitted here or discharged home.

On occasion, if the emergency department is busy and someone comes in who is in critical condition, you may be asked to wait until that person has been cared for.
