Emergency and Critical Care
In any emergency, seconds count. Our experienced staff is backed up by our mobile resuscitation unit, stocked and equipped to administer the ABCs of basic life support – Airway, Breathing, Circulation/Cardiac compressions. Emergency care is offered during regular business hours. In addition, we use the services of a local, fully staffed emergency center.
Our surgery suite gives us the versatility to perform many different types of surgeries here in our hospital. Surgery and medicine are complementary approaches that allow thorough prevention and treatment of disease in our patients.
We take many precautions to make every surgery as safe as can be. Prior to anesthesia, all of our surgery patients have a blood panel run to check for any underlying diseases that could complicate anesthesia. While anesthetized, our patients are maintained on intravenous fluids to support their blood pressure and allow quick access to the veins in case of emergency. All patients are hooked up to machines that monitor their vital signs (heart rate/ rhythm, breathing rate, blood pressure, and oxygenation), and a trained technician is monitoring the patient to ensure safety.
