The Emergency Services Department at McDonough District Hospital is prepared to respond to all types of medical emergencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Comprised of the Emergency Room and hospital-based ambulance service, the department fulfills the primary role of treating life and limb-threatening conditions. The department also serves a secondary role of providing evaluation and treatment of non-emergent conditions for patients who need or desire immediate physician attention.

The Emergency Services Department at MDH consists of receptionists, nurses, emergency medical technicians, paramedics and physicians all trained in the process of providing emergency care. With our hospital-based advanced life-support ambulance service, care is coordinated by our Emergency Room physicians from the moment an ambulance arrives at a scene.

To provide optimal efficiency and effectiveness during emergency treatment, our Radiology, Laboratory, and Cardiopulmonary Departments provide 24-hour diagnostic and therapeutic services. In addition, bereavement and social services support is readily available during crisis situations through the use of our Advocacy Services Department.

In addition, McDonough District Hospital’s Emergency Services Department maintains a close working relationship with three helicopter flight services and the regional trauma center in Peoria, Illinois to ensure further care is available when needed.
