Emergency Department


The Emergency Department at Grant Memorial Hospital is staffed 24 hours a day with qualified emergency physicians and medical personnel. All staff members receive ongoing education in advanced cardiac life support, pediatric advanced life support, and trauma care. Our commitment is to provide safe, comfortable, informed, and high-quality care, as well as meet the needs of patients and their family.

Conditions We Treat

Our staff treats immediate health needs, from minor to serious injury, illness, or disease. Patients are medically screened, and appropriate care is provided to all patients who come to the department with a complaint. The number of patients in the Emergency Department and the severity of their conditions will determine the appropriate order for patients to be seen. Patients with the most serious problems are seen first.

Standard procedures and services include suturing lacerations, phlebotomy, radiographic diagnostics, lab testing, electrocardiogram (EKG) monitoring, pulse oximetry, and medication administration. When necessary, critically injured or seriously ill patients are treated and stabilized in the Emergency Department and then transferred by ambulance or helicopter to a more specialized facility.

Our emergency medicine physicians and providers are equipped to treat a wide range of conditions that may include:

  • Allergic reaction to food or insect bite
  • Broken bone
  • Burn
  • Chest pain
  • Consistent vomiting
  • Deep wound
  • Head injury
  • Sepsis
  • Severe and/or prolonged shortness of breath
  • Severe bleeding
  • Stroke
