Emergency Care

Summersville Regional Medical Center’s Emergency Room is a Level IV Trauma Center located within Summersville Regional Medical Hospital. Emergent ground transportation is provided by JanCare and RediCare, and air transport is provided by Air Evac. Our emergency department is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Our facility includes cardiac beds and monitors as well as a pediatric trauma room and separate trauma bay. Our trained nursing team can screen for sexual and domestic violence, and administer behavioral health evaluations. Our physicians and registered nurses work closely with others throughout the region to make sure all patients’ needs are met. Our nurses are ACLS, PALS, TNCC, and NRP certified.

Our emergency department serves patients from across the region in their most critical moments. Our goals are to make certain all patients receive a fast, accurate diagnosis, and efficient treatment or transport. Regardless of insurance status, no patient will ever be turned away for treatment.

We prioritize pediatric emergency services because we understand children are not simply small versions of adult patients. Our pediatric trauma room has all of the specialized equipment necessary to treat children and adolescents. Our child-friendly features and amenities are also meant to help ease the fear and anxiety typically associated with an emergency room visit. From the time a patient walks through the door, and throughout their entire stay, families can expect to be kept up-to-date on their child’s care.

We also prioritize incoming patient services through a triage system. This system makes sure that those who require the most intense and immediate care are treated first, and those who are stable are treated expeditiously.

We are a full service emergency room capable of caring for your emergency and urgent care needs. When you or a family member is sick or injured, the decision of where to go for care is an important one that, in many cases, must be made quickly. In the case of a clear medical emergency, please call 911.
