Emergency Department

Our emergency department serves patients from across the region in their most critical moments. The Harrison Community Hospital emergency department is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Our goal is to deliver a fast, accurate diagnosis and efficient treatment and/or transport for all patients. Regardless of insurance status, no patient will ever be turned away for treatment.

Our facility includes cardiac beds and monitors, lab and imaging testing accompanied with cardiopulmonary services.

As we understand children are not simply small versions of adult patients, our rooms have all of the specialized equipment necessary to treat children and adolescents. From the time a patient walks through the door, and throughout their entire stay, families can expect to be kept up-to-date on their child’s care.

Emergency ground transportation is provided by Harrison Community Hospital EMS, and air transport is provided by HealthNet. In the case of a clear medical emergency, please call 911.
