EMERGENCY

 

Emergency Services

Our Emergency Department is staffed by highly trained physicians who are contracted to us through a company called ERx , which allows us the unique opportunity to bring Urban Healthcare to our Rural Community.

Our ER is classified as a Level IV Trauma Unit, which means we provide initial evaluation, stabilization, diagnostic capabilities, and transfer to a higher level of care. We provide surgery and critical care services as defined in the scope of services of trauma care. A trauma trained Registered Nurse is immediately available, and physicians are available upon the patients arrival to the Emergency Department.

Patients are transported quickly and safely by ambulance services provided by Tonasket EMS, Oroville EMS, and Lifeline ambulance services. In the case that a patient needs to be transferred to a higher level of care Medstar and Airlift Northwest provide air ambulance transport from Tonasket in severe trauma cases.

In the case of an emergency, always call 911.
