Emergency Care

Grace Cottage’s Emergency Department is open 24/7/365. From camping mishaps to heart attacks and strokes, the Grace Cottage ED is prepared to evaluate and care for any emergency.Grace Cottage’s Lab and Diagnostic Imaging departments support the ED, allowing immediate diagnostic testing onsite.  Grace Cottage’s ED providers see the same cases that are seen in any emergency room, often treating strokes and seizures, chest pain, abdominal pain, injuries needing stitches, broken bones, other trauma from accidents, and more. Where it is in the best interests of a patient to be sent to a specialized acute care or Level One Trauma Center, we will arrange critical care transport by helicopter or ground ambulance.Grace Cottage provides emergency care regardless of a patient’s ability to pay or eligibility for financial assistance.

If you have a non-emergency issue such as a sore throat or cold symptoms, our Family Health Clinic is available Monday to Friday for non-emergency care.  Same day appointments are usually available.

“I had an adventure coming down the Long Trail on Stratton Mountain (not too bad – but two stitches). The [Emergency Department] staff was outstanding – from the woman at the desk to Andrew [RN] and Danny [PA]. They were all friendly, professional, and personal; they gave me time and answered all my questions. They are a credit to the medical profession (in a ‘not-industrial’ mode). Thanks to all of you.”
