Our ER Ranked top 5% in the Nation by HealthGrades


I’m not surprised – my husband recently came into the ER by paramedics after I called 911. When I’d gotten home from work that day I found him weak and unable to talk. It was a Monday in the late afternoon, you wouldn’t think that it would be a busy time in the ER, but it was packed! They immediately assigned him a bed, and a team of people began assessing him and asking me questions. The smiling face of a Case Coordinator came and asked how I was doing and lent me a shoulder to express my worries. Back to the ER team! The doctor was extremely thorough, and after my husband was screened for a stroke they determined he was a “gold” alert. They explained that that alert was for sepsis (a bad infection).

Have You Ever Been in our Emergency Department?

I have to admit I have been there as a patient a couple of times and the entire experience is scary and unnerving. That was my perception as a patient. Now, as an employee I went to observe a (little over) year old program in the Emergency Department that utilizes “Scribes.”

HeartBeat Gala

Got my invitation to this year’s HeartBeat Gala yesterday.

Honoring our Emergency Medical Services in the Community

Yesterday morning, the Stead Heart and Vascular Team honored the Paramedic’s, Firefighters, and Ambulance drivers that bring distressed patients into our Emergency Room.

We will all have to deal with a loved ones death eventually.


This morning my best girlfriend and a co-worker here at the Hospital called to tell me her Mother died during the night.
