Conditions We Treat in the Emergency Department
Our emergency department staff is accustomed to handling a variety of emergency situations. Reasons for visiting the emergency room might include:
- Heart attack
- Broken bones
- Wounds requiring stitches
- Pediatric emergency
- Acute pain in stomach, chest or other part of the body
Diagnostic Tests & Treatment
When key information is not readily available and there is limited time to treat, our ER staff assesses and manages patient care using state-of-the-art imaging and diagnostic testing technology.
Specialty Trauma Care
For most patients, our EDs can provide needed acute care as well as connection to services for any follow-up, inpatient or rehabilitation needs within the UVM Health Network.
For the most serious cases - a trauma, pediatric emergency, stroke or other critical care case - physicians confer with trauma teams at the UVM Medical Center. Part of the UVM Health Network, UVM Medical Center is a level 1 trauma center with specialists in all major medical and surgical fields. In this case, our role at ECH is to provide the initial, life-saving care that gives patients time to get to a trauma, heart, burn or stroke center.
The UVM Health Network’s highly specialized critical care transport service includes a fleet of specially equipped ambulances and skilled personnel.
