Emergency Care

Emergencies happen when you least expect them. When they do, you need Arroyo Grande Community Hospital’s emergency room, ready to help 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Open During Construction

Our ER is expanding but don’t let the construction fencing worry you, our compassionate care continues. Please go directly through the doors located on the side of the building where a helpful staff will help direct you inside the ER and into the hospital.

When Accidents Happen, Our Emergency Room Is Ready


When you come to the emergency room, we know you’re here because you need to see a doctor fast. We see nearly 21,000 patients in our Emergency Room every year with an average wait time of just 20 minutes.

Payment & Eligibility Assistance Program

At Arroyo Grande Community Hospital, we believe that no one should delay seeking needed medical care because they lack insurance. That's why we assist patients in applying for public health coverage programs and offer payment assistance to eligible uninsured patients for selected services. 

To apply for our Payment Assistance Program or for help in enrolling in a government sponsored insurance program, please stop by our Admitting/Patient Registration department or schedule an appointment by calling 805.473.7697.
