If you need emergency care, get care. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 9-1-1.
Emergencies don’t wait. And you shouldn’t wait to seek care if an emergency strikes you or your family. Delaying care in an emergency can lead to worse outcomes and potentially serious complications later.
We are open and ready to safely care for you in an environment specifically designed to keep you safe.
Why Choose Us?
- Our 30-Minute Pledge means we will work diligently to have you initially seen by a medical professional within 30 minutes of your arrival.
- As an American College of Cardiology Accredited Chest Pain Center, we have achieved a higher level of expertise when caring for patients who arrive with heart attack symptoms. And it’s nice to know that kind of care is available locally, because with chest pain and heart attacks, minutes matter more than ever.
- The Neurology Telemedicine program in our Emergency Department uses virtual technology to give patients and emergency physicians 24/7 access to specialists in stroke and other neurolgy issues. And with a stroke, time to treatment is so important.
- All this, plus specialists on staff in Orthopedics, General Surgery, Gastroenterology, and Urology means we are here for you when you need us most.
Here are a few ways we have changed operations to protect the health of all patients:
- If you think you may have COVID-19, please call the ER prior to your arrival at 606-638-9451 so that our staff can provide you instructions and prepare for your arrival.
- Social distancing lines have been established and clearly marked.
- Staff and patients wear masks at all times.
- Clinical grade disinfection takes place after every patient, and as needed.
- Staff members are screened at the beginning of every shift.
- Everyone seeking emergency care is screened upon arrival to help ensure the appropriate site of care, isolating those who require it.
- All entrances, except the entrance by the ER, have been closed to ensure any person entering the hospital has been evaluated.
- We offer separate areas for general ER patients and for those suspected of having COVID-19. Patients needing general care are NOT placed in the same area as those who are suspected of having the virus.
- Precautionary signs have been placed around the ER.
- Isolation rooms equipped with air filtration systems to effectively filter virus particles are available for those that require them.
- If a patient is suspected of COVID-19, they are provided with proper PPE.
- Patients coming in by ambulance are evaluated outside the ER, where the appropriate site of care is determined. If isolation is needed, those patients do not cross into general care areas.
If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911. If you need to go the emergency room, we’re ready for you 24/7.
