Tri-State Emergency Department: Ready to Serve

During this time of uncertainty, Tri-State Emergency Department is a safe place for anyone needing emergent healthcare. Our patients should feel comfortable utilizing the emergency department. We are open 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. We are prepared to provide treatment for any emergency you may have, including COVID-19. We understand the fears surrounding coming to the hospital. Please know that high quality, safe patient care is our top priority.

What to Expect

  • All staff members and providers complete daily self-screenings. Our employees will not come to work if they show any signs or symptoms related to COVID-19.
  • All patients are screened for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 on arrival and must wear a face mask.
  • All staff members wear protective face masks.
  • Our staff and providers wash or sanitize their hands before and after interacting with patients.
  • Our exam rooms are disinfected before and after each patient. Work surfaces and equipment are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, using products that are effective against the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
  • Emergency Department visitors are allowed on a case by case basis. Please refer to the online visitor policy or signage in the screening area for the most up to date information.

Although there are many options to seek healthcare from Tri-State Memorial Hospital, including telehealth, there are still red flags that mean you need to stop what you are doing and call 911. If you are experiencing chest pain, sudden weakness, shortness of breath, numbness in part of your body, dizziness or problems with balance, fainting, severe headaches, call an ambulance.

The risks of delaying care when you are having a heart attack or stroke are far greater than the risk of viral exposure. For more information on signs and symptoms of stroke and heart attack, please visit; https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/conditions-and-diseases/heart-attack and www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/conditions-and-diseases/stroke.

“We’re here to care for our community and for all of their emergency needs,” said Leslie Augir, Director of Emergency & Trauma Services, at Tri-State Memorial Hospital & Medical Campus. “Emergency care cannot wait. If you or someone you know is experiencing time-sensitive symptoms, we are ready to provide the highest quality of care.”

Tri-State Memorial Hospital stands united, and ready to serve you.

When every minute counts and an illness or injury requires emergency care, don’t wait.

Call 911 or go to the Emergency Department.
