At St. Mary’s Sacred Heart Hospital, we know time matters in a medical emergency. We are open 24/7 to provide exceptional care for you and your family.
Our Emergency Department features 14 modern, fully-equipped treatment rooms, including two state-of-the-art trauma rooms. The ER is staffed by physicians and other healthcare professionals dedicated to emergency assessment and treatment. In addition, we partner with EMS providers across the Lake Hartwell area to ensure seamless care. We are proud that several members of our ER staff are certified in emergency nursing.
As part of the St. Mary’s system of care, we are dedicated to providing the most up-to-date services available for stroke and heart attack care, as well as other emergencies. Remember, in a stroke or heart attack, every minute matters. Call 911 immediately if symptoms appear.
When someone may be having a stroke, time is of the essence. We have partnered with a team of neurologists to provide access to acute care telemedicine, for possible stroke patients. This program links our staff, patients and imaging equipment electronically to a neurologist. We can diagnose and provide the quick treatment for stroke that is critical in saving lives and reducing long-term effects.
To treat heart attacks, we follow the American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association’s protocol for efficient, rapid access to the nearest cardiac catheterization lab. Other cardiac conditions are assessed through consultation with a cardiologist for proper treatment.
