The Saint Francis Emergency Department is a leader in the care of:
Treatment of serious, as well as non-life-threatening emergencies, is provided by board-certified physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners. Nurses receive specialty certifications in emergency nursing and trauma care. The department also supports an active toxicology program for the treatment of accidental and intentional poisonings and medication complications or interactions. Sexual assault victims receive specialized care from SANE-certified nurses (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners).
For treatment of minor illnesses and injuries, the Medical Express Unit, or Med-X, offers 10 private treatment rooms, allowing patients with minor lacerations, sprains, coughs, sore throats or other ailments to bypass the emergency room. Patients with non-life-threatening conditions can shorten their time in the waiting room by checking into the emergency room online through our InQuicker service.
The Saint Francis Emergency Department is located at 231 Ashley Street, just around the corner from the main hospital entrance. Parking is free in an adjacent lot.
