Life-saving emergency care – close to home

In emergency medical situations, whether an illness or injury, every moment is critical. And when you need access to exceptional medical care - fast - you can be confident that we're here for you.

River Falls Area Hospital has been designated a Level IV trauma center by the state of Wisconsin. This designation verifies that River Falls Area Hospital has the expertise and resources to provide care to trauma patients, including stabilization and advanced trauma life support.

Patients can be assured they will receive safe, high-quality care from our board-certified physicians and nursing team. Evaluation and treatment is provided in conjunction with advanced lifesaving equipment and technology. If a higher level of care is needed, River Fall's emergency team will evaluate, treat and stabilize in preparation for rapid transfer to the most appropriate facility by ground or air transport.

The River Falls Area Hospital Emergency Department is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is fully staffed with qualified emergency medicine physicians from Emergency Care Consultants (ECC). As a non-profit hospital we treat all patients, regardless of their ability to pay.

Upon arrival, a triage nurse will evaluate patients and determine the level of care required. We pride ourselves on providing efficient care of a wide range of conditions such as earaches, lacerations, infections and fractures, as well as life-threatening conditions such as a heart attack, stroke or cardiac arrest.

Also available in our Emergency Department are 24/7 tele-psychiatry services, which provide access to expert psychiatrists around the clock. This service helps us quickly diagnose and begin treating patients with mental health needs as we prepare them for transition to the next phase of care.

For non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries that require urgent attention, get the care you need with same-day appointments at the Allina Health River Falls Clinic Monday through Thursday until 8 pm, Friday until 5 pm and walk-in care on weekends.
