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.

 

 

Monica Schriber Honored With Daisy Award

Posted on: August 18, 2017

Monica Schriber, RN, Emergency Department, is the newest recipient of the Daisy Award. 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. “At this point in my nursing career, receiving the Daisy Award is very special to me,” said Monica. "It means a lot, but I couldn’t do it without my co-workers. They all helped. I work with a great team.” Monica was nominated for the Daisy Award by a grateful co-worker: “Monica provided excellent care of a patient presenting in the Emergency Department with injuries following an assault. The patient was paranoid, apprehensive, scared and had difficulties trusting staff. Monica provided care and comfort to the patient for over nine hours. Upon discharge, the patient had no ride home. Monica made numerous calls to family, friends and transportation agencies before finally talking with Social Services, who helped provide a taxi ride home. I want to commend Monica for her passion, support and willingness to do everything she could to provide this patient with the care and safety needed. This is an example of a true leader in our department and I’m very proud to have Monica as an advocate for our patients, families and staff.”
