The Emergency Department at McGehee Hospital is the newest addition to our facility. Built in 2017 with the assistance of a sales tax supported by the community, the Level IV ED consists of 8 beds, including a Trauma Room, 3 Treatment Rooms and an Outpatient/Ambulatory Care area.
There is an ER waiting room with private registration booths. All patients presenting for care are given a medical screening exam by a medical professional. The ED staff of physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, laboratory technicians and radiologic technologists are trained/certified to deliver skilled emergency care. Patients requiring transfer to a higher level of care may be transferred via ground or air through collaboration with McGehee EMS, Elite Ambulance Services, Air Evac, Pafford Air, Baptist Health or ACH Angel Flight.
Our hospital partners with the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Institute of Digital Health and Innovation to provide telemedicine services for stroke patients (AR SAVES), plus consults for hand injuries. Consultations for pediatric emergency conditions and burn injuries are also provided by telemedicine by collaboration with UAMS and Arkansas Children’s Hospital.
We are honored to have helped so many people in our community over the years. We stand ready to serve you and your family whenever we are needed.
The McGehee Emergency Department is a gift of Frank Hickingbotham.
