Pediatric emergency care

We know children and their parents can be especially nervous and anxious when in the ER. That is why we have a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), inpatient pediatric care and pediatric intensive care unit (PICU). Our ER also employs nurses in these departments who are certified in pediatric advanced life support and specially trained to care for children.

Air support transportation

We are equipped to transport patients through air support from the surrounding counties. Our air ambulance is a county-designated STEMI receiving center, which qualifies us to treat STEMI heart attacks quickly. Additionally, our neuroscience team and neuro-interventional radiology team provides treatment for stroke patients transported by air from surrounding counties.
