Understanding Emergency Medicine

Emergency medicine is a health specialty focused on the diagnosis and treatment of sudden injuries and illnesses. It is a multifaceted care service that involves performing the initial assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of a patient with urgent care needs. It also includes evaluating the patients’ temperament while receiving emergency care and coordinating the community response during public health crises.

Emergency Medicine and Trauma Providers

The emergency team works collaboratively with on-call specialists in all care fields through our partners at Emergency Care Specialists. Board-certified physicians work in conjunction with skilled nurses, who have certification in numerous emergency life-saving methods. 

To provide prompt emergency care for illnesses and injuries, the department also coordinates with Shiawassee County EMS Network.

Department Distinctions

American College of Surgeons (ACS) granted Memorial Healthcare the designation of a Level III Trauma Center for displaying efficient evaluation, surgery, intensive care, and emergency operations. This verification represents dedication to delivering constant high-quality acute care to patients throughout the greater Shiawassee County area and surrounding communities.

Other distinctions the Emergency Medicine department earned are the Gold Seal of Approval from The Joint Commission and the Heart-Check mark for Acute Stroke Ready Hospital Certification from the American Stroke Association. These acknowledgments convey an ability to produce exceptional results in the first (golden) hours for patients who come to the department with stroke symptoms. They also signify the telestroke skill of delivering expert consultation on Alteplase administration. This clot-busting medication can save lives during a stroke. Finally, they showcase the ability to quickly move patients to nearby comprehensive stroke centers if necessary.
