Emergency Services – Trauma Center
Disaster can happen in a heartbeat and the goal of Emergency Services at Genesis is to provide you with rapid and comprehensive emergency care. The medical center provides complete emergency services, providing for both major and minor illness and injuries. When trauma occurs, every second counts. Quick access to advanced medical care can be the difference between improved quality of life or even life itself.
Convenient Care Clinics are also an option for urgent care when a visit to your personal physician is not possible. Our scope of services includes urgent care problems only, for example, cold and flu symptoms, sprains and strains, and minor laceration repair. Diagnostic services are also available.
If you ever experience chest pain and wish to receive a medical evaluation without being admitted into the hospital, a quick trip to the Chest Pain Observation Unit at Genesis East Rusholme Street could be the answer. The unit is located in the Emergency Department, where patients are treated in a relaxed atmosphere. It is hoped that by following this procedure, the patient can be told sooner why he or she is having chest pain and can be saved the expense of being admitted to the hospital. The Chest Pain Observation Unit has six beds.
