Emergency care

Emergency care is the treatment of unexpected, severe medical injuries or infections. It is typically delivered in an emergency room or an ambulance. Our emergency medicine physicians stabilize your condition as quickly as possible to prepare you for the next step of care or discharge.

Emergency heart care

Our team is highly skilled in evaluating and treating heart attacks. We use innovative care to help give you a fighting chance at seeing another day and improving your health to prevent heart issues down the road.

Accredited Chest Pain Center

HCA Virginia Alleghany Hospital is recognized as an Accredited Chest Pain Center by the American College of Cardiology. This designation reflects our expertise and dedication in diagnosing heart attacks efficiently and providing rapid, effective treatments.

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.

How does the ER work?

It's our goal to provide you and your loved ones with quality, cost-effective care.

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.
