Emergency Departments

Our full-service emergency departments at Manchester Memorial Hospital and Rockville General Hospital are available to patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They are staffed with a full range of specialists including board-certified emergency medicine physicians, physician assistants, nurses and other emergency personnel who are trained in basic and advanced life support.

Both of our emergency departments are certified by The Joint Commission as Primary Stroke Centers. We have also received American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines® – Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award at both hospitals. The award recognizes our commitment to ensuring stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines based on the latest scientific evidence.

Patients who arrive to the emergency department will be seen based on the severity of their injury or illness. They are most commonly seen within 20 minutes of arrival, but the most seriously ill or injured patients will be attended to immediately. Our emergency departments are capable of providing treatment for almost any emergency condition, including:

  • Anxiety and depression (including suicidal thoughts)
  • Broken bones
  • Burns or smoke inhalation
  • Chest pain
  • Choking
  • Coughing up or vomiting blood
