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 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 participates in Stat Heart, a cardiac program that identifies, treats, and transfers acute heart attack patients to a cardiac care facility. Stat Heart is a collaborative effort between the Passavant Emergency Department, Springfield hospitals, and the cardiologists of Prairie Cardiovascular. Stat Heart has gained recognition throughout the country for it’s method of advanced cardiac treatment.

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.
