Lifesaving communication tools
As part of our commitment to patient-focused care, we use a real-time, cloud-based communication network. We pair this with mobile app technology, connecting our hospital with emergency medical services (EMS) in the field.
This system enables physicians to diagnose a life-threatening event (such as a stroke, heart attack, shock or sepsis) before you even arrive at the hospital. It also enables our emergency room staff to activate the appropriate healthcare team members to begin administering immediate, appropriate and lifesaving care as soon as you arrive. This improves outcomes and your ability to recover.
If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911 immediately.

When you arrive
We want you to know what to expect when you enter the emergency room. When you arrive at our hospital, park in the main lot and walk straight under the bay to the second entryway marked "emergency entrance." Once you walk through the doors, there will be a receptionist at the front desk to assist you.
But that's not where your help ends. Our staff will communicate with you clearly at each step, from registration through treatment and discharge home.
