If you need emergency care, get care. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 9-1-1.

Emergencies don’t wait. And you shouldn’t wait to seek care if an emergency strikes you or your family. Delaying care in an emergency can lead to worse outcomes and potentially serious complications later.

We are open and ready to safely care for you in an environment specifically designed to keep you safe.

 

Why Choose Us?


 
  • Our 30-Minute Pledge means we will work diligently to have you initially seen by a medical professional within 30 minutes of your arrival.
  • Our affiliation with University of Utah Health brings the expertise, services and best practices of an academic medical center home to you.
  • As a Certified Strok Receiving Center, we have proven procedures, protocols, and equipment for Stroke Care.
  • As an American College of Cardiology Accredited Chest Pain Center, we have achieved a higher level of expertise when caring for patients who arrive with heart attack symptoms. It’s nice to know that kind of care is available locally, because with chest pain and heart attacks, minutes matter more than ever.
  • The Neurology Telemedicine program in our Emergency Department uses virtual technology to give patients and emergency physicians 24/7 access to specialists in stroke and other neurology issues. And with stroke, time to treatment is so important.

All this, plus specialists on staff in General Surgery, Gastroenterology, ICU, Orthopedics and Cardiology means we are here for you when you need us most.

Here are a few ways we have changed operations to protect the health of all patients:

  • Social distancing lines have been established and clearly marked.
  • Staff and patients wear masks at all times. Staff wear PPE.
  • All hands are sanitized before entering the hospital and before leaving the hospital.
  • Clinical grade disinfection takes place hourly, after every patient, and as needed.
  • Staff members are screened twice daily, and after travel.
  • Everyone seeking care is screened upon arrival to help ensure the appropriate site of care, isolating those who require it.
  • Only one entrance is available into the hospital to ensure any person entering the hospital has been evaluated.
  • We offer separate areas for general ER patients and for those suspected of having COVID-19. Patients needing general care are NOT placed in the same area as those who are suspected of having the virus.
  • Patients who are suspected of having COVID-19 but DO NOT require emergency care will be redirected to their vehicles and will be seen by a provider via a Telehealth appointment.
  • Isolation rooms equipped with an air filtration systems to effectively filter virus particles are available for those that require them.
  • Patients coming in by ambulance are evaluated outside the ER. If isolation is needed, those patients are placed in a mask and taken directly to the appropriate care area.

If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911. If you need to go the emergency room, we’re ready for you 24/7.
