Emergency Services


24 hour-a-day, 7 day-a-week emergency medical services


The Emergency Department is staffed by specially trained providers which include physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses and paramedics. The Emergency Department is equipped with three trauma rooms and six examination rooms in order to adequately care for a wide variety of emergency needs ranging from minor medical problems to stabilizing trauma victims.  Air and ground ambulance services provide our patients with safe transport in the event additional specialty care is required during their emergency.


Here’s what our patients have to say about emergency services at DCH:


“These people are excellent!  We were impressed with the level of care and concern from the admitting clerk to the nurses and the physician.  All did an excellent job!”
– from a patient family member.


“Everyone in the ER was amazing.  They all used their AIDET skills.  And they called to check to see how I was the day after and how my visit to ER was.” – from a patient survey.


“I was very impressed with how kind and friendly your hospital was.  They went above and beyond to be helpful, kind and giving great care.” – from a patient survey.


“I could not have been treated any better, my best hospital experience I have had while being hospitalized.”
– from a patient survey.


“I would recommend your Emergency Department to everyone.”
– from a patient survey.
