Ever vigilant. Always prepared.
Emergencies don’t adhere to a nine-to-five schedule. Our emergency department provides 24-hour adult and pediatric emergency and trauma care. Telemedicine services are now available 24/7 for stroke, with a neurologist dedicated to provide this added service. It is staffed by a skilled medical and nursing staff proficient in Emergency and Advanced Cardiac Life Support. Our facility is fitted with the latest emergency and trauma care technology and is capable of accommodating ambulance and helicopter transportation. Be sure, when the unexpected occurs, the Meeker Memorial Hospital emergency department is ready. Coverage is provided by Meeker Memorial’s team of emergency providers and Advanced Practice Providers and local medical staff upon admission to the hospital.
Meeker Memorial Launches eEmergency Service
Patients who arrive at Meeker Memorial Hospital’s emergency department will now be treated by local medical providers, with assistance from an online team of board-certified emergency physicians and critical care nurses.
The new eCARE Emergency telemedicine program, funded by a $186,000 grant from The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust Rural Health Program, went online recently at Meeker Memorial Hospital. The facility’s medical staff is now connected with Avera Health in Sioux Falls, S.D., where emergency professionals are on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Using high-definition live video and sound equipment, Avera’s eCARE Emergency virtual team can guide nurses and emergency staff until a local physician arrives. They can also consult with doctors on difficult cases.
