The emergency department at Southwestern Medical Center is a Level IV trauma center that provides 24-hour patient care. Whether it is a broken bone, unexpected illness or serious trauma, our licensed and accredited staff are trained to fulfill your emergency needs. Our mission is to provide efficient, effective and affordable patient care.
The emergency department is equipped with technology useful in diagnosing and treating most illnesses and diseases. Flight-transfer services are available as necessary. The emergency department should never be used in place of a patient’s primary care provider. Our physicians and staff complete comprehensive medical examinations to diagnose, treat and care for patients in a timely fashion. Additional instructions and medications may be given upon discharge. Patients should schedule routine and follow up appointments with their primary care physicians after visiting the emergency department.
If you need assistance with finding a primary care physician, you can find a list of providers accepting new patients here.
The entrance to the emergency department is located on the west side of the campus, off Mark Edwards Drive, south of Lee Boulevard. There are signs on both roads to indicate where to turn.
