If you think you are having a MEDICAL EMERGENCY that needs attention, CALL 911.

A heart attack. A fall at a construction site. A child's severe asthma attack... Without warning, medical emergencies strike, triggering the need for immediate, expert attention.

At Virginia Hospital Center, you can get the care you need in a facility prepared to handle the toughest emergencies and provide personalized care.  Our 36-bed unit provides the best of emergency care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Not every decision made in the Emergency Department is a matter of life and death, but each is critical to the Hospital's ability to provide efficient, top-notch care.

Our Emergency Medicine facility includes:

  • A 28-bed primary unit
  • A 8-bed Express Care unit for less urgent cases
  • Sophisticated on-site equipment including cardiac monitors, portable monitoring equipment, ventilators, and a testing laboratory.
  • Dedicated X-ray room with technician in the Emergency Department.

Equipped with state-of-the-art decontamination facilities, including:

  • Decontamination showers
  • Six negative pressure rooms

As part of Virginia Hospital Center, a leading full-service Hospital, we can:

  • Perform all diagnostics and emergency patient needs without delay, including sonograms and CT scans.
  • Have some tests sent electronically to our computers for immediate readings.
  • Provide medical subspecialty consulting and treatment 24 hours a day—including cardiac catheterization, interventional radiology, OB/GYN, and surgery.
  • Arrange, as needed, seamless admission to the hospital for quality in-patient care.

Unlike other emergency facilities, virtually all Emergency Medicine patients who need inpatient care can be admitted right here. No transfer. No hassle.
