Standing ready 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, a highly trained staff of Board Certified Emergency Medicine Physicians and Nurses provide compassionate definitive diagnostic services and treatment in Phelps’ Emergency Department to approximately 27,000 people each year. The state-of-the-art facility with 32 private rooms was designed to ensure privacy and comfort. Children are treated in a separate pediatric section, which features a playroom.
There are designated treatment rooms for specialized services, including critical care, gynecology, psychiatry, orthopedics, dentistry, minor surgery, and eye, ear, nose and throat. There is also a 24-hour radiology suite with digital x-ray technology and a 64-slice scanner with cardiac capabilities.
Upon entering, patients are triaged and then brought directly to a private patient room where they are registered. Patients with less serious conditions are brought to the PromptCare area of the Emergency Department. Usual and customary Emergency Department fees apply for treatment administered in PromptCare.
All patients are evaluated by a physician.
