Open 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week


The RHSHC Emergency Services Team is committed to providing personalized, professional, and compassionate care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Our staff is trained in:

  • Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS)
  • Neonatal Resuscitation (NRP)
  • Pediatric Life Support (PALS)
  • Trauma Nurse Core Curriculum (TNCC)

Certified as a Community Trauma Care Facility (Level IV), RHSHC Emergency Services has the resources to provide initial stabilization for all trauma patients while preparing the patient for transfer, if needed.


The RHS Emergency Department utilizes Avel eEmergency, which offers a two-way video feed to cyber link providers in Cresco to board-certified emergency physicians, specialty physicians, and seasoned emergency nurses based in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.  eEmergency helps staff at RHSHC to be decisive, effective, and have more time to provide direct patient care.  The system provides a medical opinion and assistance from an additional licensed physician with phone calls, documentation, or patient transfer; freeing up RHSHC staff to focus on direct patient care.

Ambulance Services

The RHSHC Ambulance Department is staffed with critical care paramedics, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, and emergency services drivers who are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. These services provide emergency care and transport for patients of all ages. With stations in Cresco and Elma, our ambulances are equipped to treat a wide range of injuries and illnesses. In case of emergency, please call 911.
