Open 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days Per 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), Trauma Nurse Core Curriculum (TNCC), and Pediatric Life Support (PALS).
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 Avera 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.
The RHSHC Ambulance Department is staffed with paramedics, emergency medical technicians, and ambulance drivers who transport medical patients to treatment.
