Emergency Care

The Emergency Department team at Grace Cottage Hospital knows how stressful your trip to the ER can be, whether you are here following an accident, bringing in an injured child, worrying about an elderly neighbor suffering from chest pains, or for some other medical emergency.

Here’s our promise: Our skilled, specially-trained medical staff will deliver state-of-the-art emergency medical care and diagnostic testing 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year. And we will never lose sight of you — our patient – or your family.

Grace Cottage Hospital recognizes that your emergency situation is urgent, and we guarantee the medically skilled, personalized, and compassionate care you expect of a community hospital.

Our six-bed Emergency Department offers high-tech trauma and critical care, specialized behavioral health care, and four treatment areas. If you need a higher level of care, we will make sure you are stable and arrange ground or air transport to a nearby trauma center to ensure your treatment is seamless.

Grace Cottage Family Health & Hospital provides emergency care to all, regardless of a patient’s ability to pay.
