Phone: (208) 365-3561

The hospital emergency department is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and the staff is committed to providing prompt, compassionate health care for our patients. The department is staffed by RNs, physician assistants or medical physicians. Our laboratory and radiology departments are in close proximity to provide the diagnostic tools and testing.

Any individual coming to the emergency department will receive an appropriate medical screening, examination, and stabilizing treatment as medically indicated regardless of race, creed, sex, national origin, religion or source of payment for care.

 

When Should I Go to the ER?

Use good judgment in deciding when to use emergency medical services. If you are alarmed by unusually severe symptoms, it is best to seek immediate care. Examples of severe symptoms may include chest pain, stroke symptoms or shortness of breath.
