From minor illnesses and injuries to major trauma and critical medical conditions, our Emergency Department here at Memorial Healthcare is ready to treat you.
Recently, Memorial Healthcare has been recognized by the Women’s Choice Awards for Best Hospitals in Emergency Care.
Of those surveyed, 71% of patients claimed they would definitely recommend Memorial Healthcare for emergency care, with the hospital ranking in the top 1% of the 4,729 hospitals considered. Survey results placed the hospital within the top 25th percentile for the percentage of patients with stroke symptoms who receive brain scan results within 45 minutes, as well as for adherence to the severe sepsis and septic shock Early Management Bundle measure implemented by CMS in 2015.
We are proud to be Level III Trauma Center verified for demonstrating prompt assessment, surgery, intensive care and emergency operations. The recognition is awarded by the American College of Surgeons (ACS). This verification recognizes our continued dedication to providing the highest quality of acute care to the residents in our region without having to travel long distances.
“It’s an incredible milestone to celebrate becoming a verified Level III trauma center,” said Brian L. Long, FACHE, President/CEO of Memorial Healthcare. “This rigorous verification process validates Memorial Healthcare’s commitment to providing the highest quality trauma care for all injured patients with immediate access to advanced life-saving capabilities.”
Memorial Healthcare’s life-support-certified responders, trauma-trained nurses and board-certified surgeons stand ready 24/7 to coordinate all resources in any emergency.
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. We have achieved exceptional results in the first “golden” hour of those presenting to the emergency department with stroke symptoms, and if needed, we have 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.
