 Critical Care

Emergency Department

Specialists in the Emergency Department at HMC treat life-threatening illnesses. Teams of board-certified physicians, registered nurses, advanced midlevel providers and other specially trained staff are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to treat anyone seeking emergency medical care. Each year, HMC emergency care physicians see around 18,000 patients in our emergency room.

In the most advanced critical cases when specialized care is needed, we coordinate efforts with the Air Evac Lifeteam located on our campus for transfer to the appropriate facility for treatment.  We work in association with Kid Care when critical pediatric situations require additional resources.
