Capability

Emergency care

The Peter J. King Emergency Care Center offers emergency medical programs, disaster preparedness, advanced technology and community education efforts together under one state-of-the-art facility. The department has been designed to manage biologic, chemical and mass casualty incidents.

Advanced triage services

Triage is the process by which medical staff sort patients based on the urgency of their health care needs.

The Center's advanced triage has patients being seen by a physician's assistant or registered nurse upon arrival. Patients are then placed in an examination room for registration and examination thus reducing wait time.

Imaging capabilities

A computed tomography scanning device located within the Emergency Care Center allows patients to be diagnosed faster and treatment to begin more quickly.

Enhanced privacy and safety

Each examination room can be fully enclosed for improved privacy for our patients. Consultation rooms for families are available.

In addition, there are six, private, secured rooms that are dedicated to patients with mental health concerns to improve both their safety and the safety of others.
