ER Care with Kindness
New and Improved Emergency Department
We are proud to announce the highly anticipated opening of the new Emergency Department at St. John's Regional Medical Center. The new ED, which spans more than 6,500 square feet, is part of a larger initiative to modernize and expand SJRMC’s facilities.
While SJRMC has always provided the community with board certified Emergency Physicians, skilled nurses and an exceptional team, the staff and patients now benefit from the following amenities:
- An improved patient and ambulance entrance
- A new and sizeable waiting area
- Three essential and private triage rooms
- Centralized nurse's station with sophisticated monitoring capabilities
- Sizeable private treatment rooms that have been configured to accommodate various medical emergencies
Following the move into the new ED, construction on the original ED area began. In addition to the amenities listed above, the integrated ED will also boast the following when complete:
- A total of four negative pressure isolation rooms
- A total of 31 exam rooms (including one bariatric room and two psychiatric safe rooms)
- An in-department x-ray suite
- Three refreshed resuscitation bays
These enhancements are part of Dignity Health’s commitment to improve the health of the communities we serve. In addition to the new Emergency Department, St. John's Regional Medical Center is going through a momentous transformation of its hospital campus. Learn more about the expansion here.

When to Go to the ER
The emergency room, or ER, is a hospital service where people can seek immediate help for serious injuries or illnesses that can’t be managed or treated at home, in a doctor’s office, or at an urgent care facility. Here is some helpful information on when you should go to the ER.
