No one plans to have a medical emergency. But when the unexpected happens, PeaceHealth is ready. Our emergency departments offer around-the-clock care for serious illnesses and injuries, including heart attack and stroke.
If you or a loved one needs emergency care, you’ll find yourself in expert hands. Our team includes:
If you’re admitted to the hospital for extra treatment, you’ll receive complete care and support until you’re healthy enough to go home.
Your health, safety and comfort are top priorities for us.
Children who are waiting for treatment, or waiting for a family member to receive care, can pass the time in our playroom.
PeaceHealth emergency care centers are certified by the American Heart Association as a STEMI Receiving Center. This means we can rapidly diagnose and treat heart attacks caused by a blocked coronary artery.
PeaceHealth hospitals have been named a Primary Stroke Center by the Joint Commission/Det Norske Veritas. This means we meet strict standards of care that improve our patients’ chances of surviving and recovering from stroke.
