Our Emergency Department provides care to patients with urgent medical conditions ranging from complex problems such as heart attacks and strokes to other urgent conditions such as cuts and broken bones. Care is provided by a physician 24 hours a day, serving more than 10,000 patients a year.
We have 6 private rooms including a trauma room and cardiac room which are equipped with the latest technology. We also have imaging equipment available in our Emergency Department including a portable x-ray machine allowing the patients to have imaging performed right in their room if needed. Our Emergency Department is staffed 7 days a week with a team of highly-skilled independent board certified physicians, registered nurses, and support staff specially trained in the emergency treatment of adults and children. All are certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support as well as Pediatric Advanced Life Support.
We also offer stroke telemedicine, also know as telestroke. Neurologists, physicians who have advanced training in the nervous system, can remotely evaluate patients who have had a stroke and make recommendations to the emergency department physician here at Evans Memorial Hospital. The physicians communicate using video cameras and an internet connections. This allows for quicker diagnosis and treatment and in turn, improved outcomes.
The entire emergency department staff is committed to providing you with the highest level of care in a private, comfortable setting.
