You'll be in good hands

All physicians in Mercy's Emergency Department are board-certified in emergency medicine. Our nurses are also specially trained, many of whom are nationally certified in emergency nursing.

Nationally Recognized Care

Mercy is home to the area's most experienced accredited Chest Pain Center. Learn more about chest pain and heart attack symptoms.

We have also earned Disease-Specific Care Certification from The Joint Commission for Advanced Primary Stroke Center.

Earning this recognition means that professionals in the Mercy Emergency Department play a vital role in the treatment of heart attack and stroke patients. In fact, for cardiac patients, Mercy has had the best door-to-balloon times in the state for more than five years — 25 minutes faster than the national average.

For stroke patients, Mercy is one of only 7% of U.S. hospitals to achieve stroke door-to-treatment time in less than 60 minutes. Faster times save lives in the Mercy Emergency Department.

Choose Mercy. You deserve the best.
