As a Level I Trauma Center -- the highest level of State designation for trauma centers -- the emergency department at
Johnson City Medical Center has the personnel, facilities and equipment to handle major trauma emergencies, including
head injuries, brain attack/stroke and chest pain.
Johnson City Medical Center offers all levels of
emergency care including immediate availability of an in-house general
surgeon, anesthesiologist and emergency medicine physician. The
Emergency Department offers 24-hour emergency medical
care that includes
surgical, laboratory, radiology and pharmacy services.
The Children’s Emergency Department at Johnson City Medical Center
is the only pediatric-specific emergency department in the region
offering 24-hour emergency care by specially trained personnel focused
on providing care to patients from birth to 18 years of age.
The Children’s ED is located next to the regular Emergency Department, allowing quick access to the Level 1 Trauma Center, Wings Air Rescue and the ambulance bays.
The Children’s ED has eight treatment bays, a
child-friendly waiting room and a staff that understands that pediatric
patients are not just smaller versions of adult patients.
