Arnot Health offers high-quality emergency care services at each of its three affiliated hospitals. Our various specialty units and services across the system can assist in a variety of emergency health situations.
The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) offers a list of warning signs that indicate a medical emergency:
Emergency intervention for heart attacks is coordinated with a Cardiac Team of cardiologists, radiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons. Depending on the type and severity of the heart attack, the cardiac team takes patients from the Emergency Department directly to the Arnot Health Heart and Vascular Institute.
The New York State Department of Health has designated Arnot Ogden Medical Center as a Stroke Center. We have protocols, a program of care and a team in place to care for patients presenting symptoms of stroke with a rapid, definitive treatment plan. The multidisciplinary Stroke Team includes emergency physicians, neurologists, neurosurgeons, radiologists, nurse practitioners, nurses, vascular surgeons, and rehabilitation specialists.
