You can't plan when an emergency will happen. Have the confidence and trust that, should emergency medical care be needed, the emergency department services at Columbus Regional Health have advanced technology and processes with highly qualified doctors and staff to best care for emergency needs.
Emergency care often starts away from the hospital with a 911 call for emergency transport. Our Ambulance Service is staffed by skilled paramedics and emergency medical technicians for 24/7 response. We also have emergency air medical services available through LifeLine Critical Care Transport, with a helicopter stationed at our hospital helipad.
We're especially focused on heart attack and stroke care when every minute can make a difference in the outcome. Our door to treatment time in the emergency room for heart attack patients is better than national standards set by the American Heart Association. We're also an accredited Chest Pain Center - this gives you added trust that our emergency services team is following the best processes for the best results.
Nearly 40,000 patients receive emergency care in our 20-bed Emergency Department each year by our board certified emergency medicine physician specialists and a team of registered nurses, emergency technicians, and support personnel with specialized training and certification.
