Henderson County Community Hospital offers emergency care services when you need them most. The emergency department team is ready to assist you in emergency situations.
Our emergency department is a specialized area of the hospital designed to care for patients with acute illnesses and urgent injuries.
If tests are ordered, you will be in the ER until the results are received and analyzed and shared with the doctor overseeing your care. The typical timeframe for administering and processing some common diagnostic tests include:
If your doctor determines that a stay at the hospital is necessary, we will contact a private or on-site physician, if you don't already have a primary care physician. This person will be responsible for your care once you've been moved from the emergency department to inpatient care.
When you leave Henderson County Community Hospital, you will receive instructions for your continued care. Our nurses will explain each medication prescribed and any possible side effects.
Once you've returned home, our staff will follow up with you to see if you have questions about your care or feedback about your experience at our hospital. You may receive a follow-up call asking about your care.
