Emergency Room Services

East Adams County’s emergency room is the first stop for local residents experiencing a severe injury or illness. We’ve equipped our hospital’s emergency room (ER) with the basic equipment and staff needed to treat patients quickly and assess their conditions without delay.

If our ER team determines that additional, more advanced treatment is needed, we’ll coordinate with our regional partners to transfer our patients and ensure they receive constant care every step of the way.

Whenever you need immediate medical attention, we’re ready for you.

Visiting the Emergency Room

From the moment you arrive, the EARH staff will focus on you and your situation. They will assess your injury or illness and then register you into our system so that we can begin your treatment and order any needed tests.

Whenever possible, please bring a government-issued ID and any health insurance policy information with you. Rest assured that you will receive immediate medical attention regardless of your ability to pay at the time of service. Our purpose is to keep the people in our community safe and healthy.
