When an emergency happens, we want to make sure you’re getting the highest-quality care as quickly as possible. As a designated Level III Trauma Center and a stroke ready hospital, we’re a high quality emergency department in the Stillwater area.
Our emergency medicine doctors are the same world class doctors who work at the Regions Hospital emergency department and specialize in treating a wide range of emergency conditions.
If you or a loved one are facing an emergency, call 911 immediately.
When an illness or injury isn’t life threatening, many patients choose to drive to the emergency center instead of calling an ambulance. If this is the case, we always encourage a loved one to drive. To get to the emergency center, follow
- A copy of the patient’s health insurance information
- A list of the patient’s previous medical problems, diagnoses, allergies or recent medical tests
- A current list of the patient’s medicines
- The patient’s glasses, prescriptions and photo ID
Once you arrive, a nurse will check your vital signs, evaluate your condition and ask you about your health history. This ensures that patients with the most serious illnesses or injuries will be seen first. Patients with an emergency medical condition (severe bleeding, severe breathing problems, stroke) will be seen immediately.
For everyone’s safety, we aren’t currently allowing visitors to the emergency center. Exceptions include:
- Pediatric patients: Parents and/or legal guardians
- Patients who need additional assistance: A caregiver or attendant
- Compassionate care patients (end-of-life patients)
We’re encouraging patients to find other ways to connect with their loved ones, such as FaceTime, or Skype. Our patient care teams can help arrange video chats and more.
