We have a 24 hour, physician staffed stand by emergency room and ambulance service. The goal of emergency care is to stabilize patients and help them through the initial phase of their illness or injury. Our highly trained ambulance crews are able to apply clinical interventions and the urgent treatment necessary when a patient is experiencing a life threatening emergency. EPHC utilizes advanced diagnostic imaging and laboratory testing to assist our highly trained emergency physicians in their evaluation and treatment of our patients.
EPHC has a small, 9-bed acute care hospital. Patients who will benefit from hospital care close to home and family are admitted here, while many patients who need a higher level of specialty care are evaluated, stabilized, and transported by ambulance or CareFlight to a larger hospital.
Our hospital also offers a wide range of outpatient diagnostic services. These include a full service clinical laboratory and a comprehensive imaging department offering preventive and diagnostic services.
We offer low-cost laboratory and imaging specials throughout the year.
