Heart attack treatment

We are an Accredited Chest Pain Center with PCI (Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention) designated by the American College of Cardiology. This means that our dedication to excellent heart attack treatment has received national recognition.

It's essential to know the signs of heart attack and seek immediate medical attention if they are experienced. Prompt treatment is essential to preserve the heart muscle.

Stroke treatment

Similar to a heart attack, it is important to know the signs of stroke and act quickly if they appear. We strive to provide fast, effective stroke care.

Our dedication to stroke treatment has been recognized regionally and nationally. We are designated as a Primary Stroke Center by The Joint Commission and the Agency for Health Care Administration.

Express ER

We are one of the only hospitals in North Florida to offer an ER designed to treat minor emergencies as priorities.

Our Express ER is a division of our main emergency room and is designed to treat conditions, such as:

  • Common pediatric concerns
  • Flu
  • Fractures
  • Respiratory infections
  • Sprains

The Express ER is open 24/7 and staffed with emergency physicians and nurses who are ready to treat your minor emergency without the traditional ER wait.

Pediatric ER

We offer a dedicated pediatric ER to meet the unique needs of children. We provide a child-friendly atmosphere that is calming to children and comforting to parents. All members of our healthcare team are trained to care for children of all ages, from toddlers to adolescents.

Fast emergency care

We know that in emergency situations, every second counts. That's why our goal is to provide expert emergency care to as many patients as possible. With an average wait time of less than 25 minutes, our ER often has the shortest wait time in the Tallahassee area.

Short ER wait times

Our updated average ER wait times are available to patients 24/7. Our ER wait times are listed on our website, accessible by texting "ER" to 32222 and found on several digital outdoor boards in the Big Bend region. With the texting option, message and data rates may apply. Visit text help for more information.

We were one of the first hospitals in the nation to make our average ER wait times so accessible. We're proud to offer short wait times so that we can provide patients with efficient, high-quality care when every second counts.
