Emergency Medicine

It is reassuring to know that if you or a loved one is faced with a medical emergency, the staff at Chester River Hospital Center will provide the highest level of medical care.

Our emergency care professionals are supported by the most advanced technology to diagnose, treat and heal the growing numbers of patients who enter our doors, be it for stroke, heart attack, a broken wrist or any other type of medical emergency.

This is especially evident in the newly expanded Emergency Department which, driven by patient need, has grown from five treatment stations to 11 stations. Our Emergency Department is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and receives all patients.

After checking in, most emergency patients will be brought in to the Emergency Department immediately, however; if the Emergency Department is full, some patients may need to wait a short time before they can be accommodated in the department.

One of the first people patients see in the Emergency Department is the physician, who will make an initial visit to initiate care. Patients will also be visited at the bed side by an Admissions representative who will take care of any needed paperwork. Once care commences, patients may see a variety of healthcare workers depending on the type of care needed.

Depending on the needs of the patient, treatment will be provided in the:

General Treatment Area
Cardiac Care Room
Minor Surgical Station
Gynecological Treatment Room
Orthopedic/Cast Room
Behavioral Health Treatment Room

If admission is necessary, a patient will be admitted to one of the hospital`s inpatient rooms.
