Emergency Department

The emergency department at Saint Francis Hospital South provides around-the-clock expert care in a compassionate, professional manner to patients of all ages.

Each of our experienced emergency department physicians are board-certified in emergency care and all of our nurses are required to be certified in the most current lifesaving techniques, including cardiac, pediatrics and trauma. From initial diagnosis to treatment and discharge, our emergency department team provides comprehensive care for a broad spectrum of illnesses and injuries.

Upon arrival to the emergency department, patients are triaged (assessed) by a registered nurse to determine the severity of the condition. This process allows patients with more severe problems and conditions to be seen first.

While providing quality patient care is our top priority, our emergency department staff strives to ensure that each emergency room visit is as quick and efficient as possible. We are focused on the overall patient experience and committed to delivering first-class, individualized service to meet the needs of ever patient.

For problems that are less severe, but still require attention before the next business day, please visit one of our urgent care centers.
