St Joseph's Emergency Room

Emergency Care 24/7

Our Emergency Department is open, ready and safe for patients who need immediate care for urgent and life-threatening conditions.


Emergency & Trauma Services

St. Joseph's Emergency Department physicians are board-certified in Emergency Medicine, and our nursing staff is certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) and Trauma Nurse Core Curriculum (TNCC). In addition, our Emergency Department and Trauma Center was the first ACS Level I Trauma Center in the state that is verified by the American College of Surgeons.


ERAdvisor is a new Dignity Health service that updates patients and families on their phones about their progress in the emergency department. All patients need to do is provide a cell phone number to registration staff to get started.
