When a medical emergency strikes, there is no margin for error. Seconds can often mean a difference between life and death.
Wickenburg Community Hospital (WCH)’s Level IV Trauma Center provides around-the-clock emergency care with a highly trained, skilled, and professional emergency team of nurses and physicians who are Board Certified ED providers with Advanced Trauma Life Support Certifications who are ready to respond to any medical emergency. With an Air Medical Transport onsite, newly renovated emergency entrance, added triage space, and updated patient rooms, wait times are averaging 80% faster than emergency departments in the valley.
This Emergency Department team is dedicated to expanding their ability to care for patients by partnering with Telehealth services
whenever the opportunity allows. One of the country’s top centers for neurology and neurosurgery, Barrow Neurological Institute and St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, has partnered with WCH to better serve patients for stroke evaluation and treatment. This is a prime example of one of the partnerships developed to increase quality of care provided to patients in need.
