Emergency care that’s really on the double.
Both Marshall Medical Centers North and South feature certified Trauma III Emergency Departments staffed with board certified physicians and highly skilled nurses.
Staff physicians and emergency room doctors maintain a close working relationship that benefits patients at all levels of treatment. With fast track systems in place at both hospitals, patients are quickly evaluated and treated. Both of our Emergency Departments are physician-staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Utilizing the most modern equipment and medical procedures, we treat almost 70,000 emergency patients each year.
