Emergency Services

Emergency services are offered 24 hours a day, seven days a week at Saint Francis Hospital and Saint Francis Hospital South. Emergency services care is provided by our highly trained crisis teams of doctors, nurses, physician assistants and paramedics.

Whether arriving by private vehicle or ambulance, all patients are assessed by a registered nurse to determine the severity of illness or injury, which is referred to as the triage process. Patients with more serious problems may be seen before patients with less severe symptoms or injuries.

Types of emergency services care are offered for, but not limited to:
 
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Chest pain
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Head wound

Non-emergency services, including routine care and the diagnosis and treatment of common illnesses, are best treated at our urgent care centers or by your primary care physician.
