At Parkwest Medical Center we strive to provide outstanding patient care during emergency situations. Our 39-bed Emergency Department provides care to patients experiencing medical emergencies, acute illnesses, and minor trauma. Staff work in a fast-paced environment to quickly assess conditions and stabilize patients in life-threating emergencies such as stroke, cardiac events, or severe injuries as well as less urgent medical issues. The Emergency Department sees around 140 patient visits per day.

Our staff members include RNs, Paramedics, LPNs, ED Techs and Health Unit Coordinators. Our department is high-energy, team-oriented, customer satisfaction focused. We currently use a self-scheduling model that covers a six-week period. Staff work three 12-hour shifts per week, with an every-other-weekend rotation and two Mondays per month.
