Emergency Department
In a medical emergency, every second counts. The Emergency Department (ED) of JSMC is committed to providing high-quality care 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
Serving more than 35,000 people annually, the Emergency Department is staffed with physicians, registered nurses and allied health personnel, specifically trained in the full spectrum of emergency health care needs and problems.
Our Emergency Department is a sophisticated medical environment designed to manage emergencies, trauma, and resuscitation for both adults and children. An air ambulance service is on hospital grounds.
For minor injuries and illnesses, we also offer Convenient Care, where no appointment is necessary.
A highly-skilled, experienced team
At the Emergency Department, our goal is to provide consistent, high-quality care, efficiently, and in a caring environment. We have increased the number of clinicians on duty at any given time, which has shortened the time patients have to wait for treatment.
Specialized care for patients of all ages
Our physicians and nurses are supported by a full complement of ancillary services, such as:
  • Laboratory
  • Radiology
  • Cardiology
  • General surgery
  • Pharmacy
What is the process in the ED?
Upon arrival in the Emergency Department, patients will be assigned a "triage acuity level" based upon the nature of the complaint, vital signs, and the level of treatment needed. "Triage" means to evaluate and prioritize the order in which patients should be treated, to ensure that patients with the greatest medical emergency receive the most prompt care.
