Emergency Room

You never know when an emergency may happen, but you can count on us to provide you with quality emergency care 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Knowing what to expect during your visit to the emergency room may help put you more at ease. Our physicians and staff stand ready to provide care around the clock.

The Emergency Department (ED) at Pershing Health System is staffed by trained nurses and physician staffing is provided by Missouri Physician Partners. Through our partnership with Missouri Physician Partners (an emergency medicine group), we staff highly qualified, board-certified physicians in our Emergency Department (ED) 24/7.

When you arrive at our ED, a nurse will examine you and determine how serious the medical condition is.  The nurse and physician will classify your medical condition as:

  • Emergent- having a life-threatening illness or injury
  • Urgent- a stable condition, but needing help as quickly as possible
  • Non-urgent- a stable condition requiring minimal treatment and medical attention

What to Expect?

Patients are seen in the ED in order of medical priority and we appreciate your patience and understanding.

Please be prepared to provide pertinent information about your medical history:

  • Current medication list
  • Allergies
  • Summary of your past illnesses and injuries
  • ¬†Past surgeries

Having this information readily available greatly assists our medical team in making informed decisions regarding your treatment.
