Who We Are
The Emergency Department at Henry County Health Center is a Level IV trauma facility. All patients presenting to the Emergency Department receive a medical screening providing all necessary testing and on-call services within the capability of Henry County Health Center to reach a diagnosis. The Emergency Department is staffed with a physician 24 hours a day.
What We Do
The ED is staffed 24 hours a day with a minimum of 2 RN’s. The RN’s are licensed professional nurses committed to ensuring that the emergency patients receive optimal care and treatment. Our staff maintains certifications in Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Pediatric Advanced Life Support, Basic Life Support, and Trauma Care. We also participate in ongoing in-service education programs and periodic clinical skills evaluation to ensure that the quality of care provided is kept current with evidence-based practice and standards of care.
The Emergency Department also participates in Continuous Performance Improvement processes. This involves the entire Emergency Department staff including RN’s and our ED Medical Director Physician. We are committed to maintaining the highest quality medical care with a personal commitment to patient satisfaction. Our innovative program with Iowa City’s Mercy Cardiology for heart attack patients, and our participation in the automatic acceptance program for expedited transfer to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, demonstrate how we work to assure quality care for each patient who comes through our doors.
