Emergency Services


When you’re in immediate need of medical attention, the last thing you want to do is sit and wait in a hospital emergency room. That’s why at Passavant Area Hospital, we provide everyone who comes through our doors with high quality, around-the-clock emergency care as quickly as possible!

We have a team of emergency physicians, nurse practitioners, and registered nurses on-hand 24-hours-a-day to provide care to all patients, from critical emergencies to minor injuries and illnesses.  We have transportation agreements in place if advanced care is needed at specialized medical facilities.

Passavant Area Hospital participates in a cardiac program for STEMI’s (ST Elevated Myocardial Infarction) that identifies, treats, and transfers acute heart attack patients to a cardiac care facility. STEMI’s are cared for through a collaborative effort between Passavant, Memorial Medical Center and Springfield Clinic.

In addition, the Emergency Department at Passavant is home to a 24-hour-a-day paramedic program that serves a five county area, Morgan County’s enhanced 911 medical dispatch system, and a specially trained staff for sexual assault situations.

 

 

Tamera Norton Honored with Daisy Award

Posted on: May 17, 2017

Tamera Norton, a registered nurse in the Transitional Care Unit, is the newest recipient of the Daisy Award at Passavant Area Hospital. Passavant partners with the Daisy Foundation to give the award each quarter to a registered nurse or licensed practical nurse who consistently demonstrates excellence through clinical expertise and extraordinary compassionate care. A grateful patient nominated Tamera for the honor: “Over the course of my 28 days at Passavant, I became concerned about my progress. I expressed my concern to Tamera. She took note and promised to try and resolve. She made many phone calls until she was able to make an appointment for me. She kept me informed every step of the way and helped arrange for me to leave the unit for the doctor’s appointment. The result of the appointment not only eased my mind, but caused a complete change in my therapy. Tamera cared for my needs unfailingly and always with professional and pleasant attitudes. The rest was way beyond the call of duty.” After receiving the award, Tamera is considering becoming a Daisy ambassador to help spread the word about her experiences. “As a nurse, our common core is to care that much about our patients. I was just trying to provide the good, quality care that our patients want,” Tamera said.
