Certain illnesses and injuries can’t wait for an 8 a.m. appointment with your primary care physician—but waiting for hours on end in an emergency room isn’t an ideal alternative. Fortunately, there’s Southern Hills Hospital & Medical Center. The staff members and urgent care physicians at Southern Hills Hospital & Medical Center are devoted to providing the best emergency care in the Las Vegas area.
Staffed 24 hours a day by certified ER physicians, specialists, highly trained nurses, and a staff of medical experts, our hospital is committed to providing patients with urgent medical care in 30 minutes or less. We believe that every second matters, which is why we strive to diagnose and treat all of our ER patients efficiently and effectively. Our team members utilize the Triage Program to rapidly evaluate every single ER patient; this not only determines the level of care necessary, but also allows us to start diagnostic treatments, order needed medications, or perform life-saving interventions when necessary. We also have a number of diagnostic and digital imaging technologies readily available, including X-rays, MRIs (magnetic resonance imaging), computerized tomography (CT), and more.
The best way to determine whether you require immediate care from our emergency room or urgent care center is learn about the warning signs of a medical emergency. Some signs that you should call 9-1-1 or visit our emergency room include:
- Difficulty breathing
- Chest pain lasting more than two minutes
- Vision changes
- Uncontrolled bleeding
- Sudden or severe pain
- Fainting, dizziness, or weakness
- Persistent diarrhea or vomiting
