Emergency Department at Rhea Medical Center



The Emergency Department staff at Rhea Medical Center continually strives to always provide excellent emergency care in helping to make Rhea Medical Center's total turnaround time is about 70 minutes less than the national average.

With the new facility, the Emergency Department has nearly doubled in size, going from nine exam rooms to fourteen.  The new triage area is equipped with an EKG monitor, which will help emergency personnel better assess the needs of patients showing heart attach symptoms.

At Rhea Medical Center, an emergency physician is on duty 24-hours a day, seven days a week.
