Our staff of highly-trained providers and nurses are ready to provide high-quality emergency care quickly and efficiently.

The SRMC Emergency Room is a department of the critical access hospital. It is equipped with a triage room, 4 treatment rooms, trauma room including 24-hour radiology and laboratory services. the SRMC ER can receive a variety of emergencies ranging from a cut requiring stitches to conditions requiring surgical intervention.

Upon arrival to the ER, the patient's condition will be evaluated to determine the severity and extent of injuries/illness. Those patients with life-threatening injuries, illness or conditions will be treated immediately. Depending on the severity of the injury, a transfer may be required.

During triage, nurses will assess the patient's medical condition to determine what treatment is required. Waiting periods can occur, so please remain calm and cooperative with medical staff.
