Features of this state-of-the-art facility include two centers of patient care: one for acute care and the other for less serious conditions. The emergency department houses 25 private treatment rooms, a hotel-like reception area and a private room for family consultations. Together with Ronald McDonald House, we offer a special waiting room for families of children who are cared for in Jefferson Washington Township Hospital's Emergency Department. The waiting room is bright, cheerful and full of toys, video games and refreshments for children and their parents. 24-hour pediatric emergency care is available at this location.

Emergency Room Tips

Because the cost for a typical ER visit is often four times as much as a visit to a physician’s office, you can realize a significant cost savings by using the ER only for acute medical situations, (i.e., severe burns, broken bones).

Before Going to the Emergency Room

  • Contact your regular doctor for non-acute conditions (i.e., earaches, minor fevers, sunburns, etc.). Your physician has your complete medical history, and should be able to make a recommendation to make you comfortable or advise an emergency room visit. If you do not have a regular physician, click here to find a physician in your area.
  • Be prepared with a detailed description of your medical emergency. If you are concerned that you will be unable to effectively communicate your condition to the ER staff, bring a friend of family member to help. Providing as much information as possible during the initial evaluation will help make your visit go more smoothly.
  • If you have a chronic illness, try to keep an updated file containing any relevant test results, allergies, current medications and physician reports handy. Take this with you to your emergency room visit.  This will assist the ER staff with assessing your condition, and can possibly save time and money by preventing duplication of diagnostic tests.
