The Emergency Department's services are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Up to 106 patients seek help through the department each day—approximately 38,000 patients each year—the majority of whom suffer medical problems requiring swift and effective treatment: cardiac arrest, respiratory problems, or abdominal injuries, for example. The scope of our services, however, has never detracted from our compassionate and individualized approach to emergency care. Each patient who comes to Mercy Medical Center for treatment finds professionals who have dedicated themselves to prompt, skillful, personalized care. These medical experts—from specially trained nurses to physicians are qualified to respond to the most critical need, and to provide state-of-the-art treatment.
