Emergency Department (ED)
The Emergency Department at Murray County Medical Center consists of two large exam rooms that have been expanded to facilitate the care and treatment of our emergent and critical patients. A third exam room is also available to accommodate less critical patients. MCMC offers emergency services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The MCMC Emergency Department entrance is on the west side of the hospital on Ironwood Ave. To ensure the safety of our patients and staff all doors are now being locked except the main entrance on the east side of the building, which is open from 6:00am to 8:30pm daily.
There is an intercom system located in the Emercency Entrance that connects you immediately to staff. The doors can be opened from the Patient Representative service desk to allow entrance to the emergency area.
Our medical providers and nursing staff have specialized training to treat a variety of emergency situations for all patients ranging in age from infants to geriatrics. Registered Nurses with CALS, BLS, ACLS, and TNCC training are available to assess your emergency medical condition 24/7. Fully qualified medical providers are in-house on weekends 24 hours/day (Friday evening until Monday morning) and on call on weekdays to provide care for your emergent or urgent medical needs. Staff receives continued education in emergency care and emergency equipment is updated or added when necessary to provide the best possible care for our patients. MCMC was designated a Level IV Trauma Hospital by the Minnesota State Trauma System.
Radiology and Laboratory personnel are available for emergency testing and treatment including CT scan, MRI and blood bank services. Anesthesia and Respiratory Therapy staff can be utilized for trauma team activation or airway assistance when needed.
A helipad is in close proximity to MCMC if the need arises for air transport to another facility for specialty care and treatment.
