If you are experiencing a medical emergency call 911 IMMEDIATELY
Our emergency room treats all types of illness and injury ranging from minor illnesses and injuries to major trauma and critical medical conditions.
In 2021, our Emergency Department received The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval and the American Stroke Association’s Heart-Check mark for Acute Stroke Ready Hospital Certification, recognizing the hospital for its ability to support better outcomes for stroke care. Memorial Healthcare has achieved exceptional results in the first “golden” hour of those presenting to the emergency department with stroke symptoms. Memorial Healthcare has the ability to utilize telestroke capabilities to provide expert consultation on the administration of Alteplase, a potentially lifesaving clot-busting drug, and can quickly transfer patients to surrounding Comprehensive Stroke Centers if needed.
Our emergency team works hand-in-hand with specialists on-call in all disciplines and the hospital’s Surgery Department is available 24 hours a day, if needed. All emergency physicians are board certified and the emergency medicine nursing team is certified in a variety of emergency life-saving techniques. We also work closely with the Shiawassee County EMS Network to provide a coordinated approach to delivering timely care to the ill and injured.
