Emergency Care

The Treatment Center (TC) at Chinese Hospital is licensed as a Level 4 Standby Emergency Medical Service, Physician on Call. It has 7 exam rooms and 4 obervation beds. The Treatment Center is equipped and maintained at all times by qualified nursing personnel to receive patients with urgent medical problems and provides board certified emergency physician service within a reasonable time.

The Treatment Center provides evaluation and treatment to patients of all ages and varying levels of illnesses (minor to critical.) When you come to the facility and request emergency care, you are first seen by the staff RN and given a medical screening examination by the TC physician accordingly. The scope of the examination depends on your present complaint and your medical history. The process may range from a simple examination (such as a brief history and physical) to a complex examination that may include laboratory tests, diagnostic imaging, lumbar punctures, other diagnostic tests and procedures and the use of on-call physician specialists. You are evaluated for response to treatment and may be admitted to the hospital, transferred for further necessary treatment not provided by the facility, or discharged with follow-up instructions.
