Emergency Department

Our emergency medical team is here to provide the highest level of quality care to our patients. Nearly 25,000 people visit the Emergency Department at Lutheran Hospital each year.

Our Mission is to provide care for ill or injured patients in a competent and caring manner. Seconds count in an emergency, and for more than 100 years, people have counted on the Emergency Department at Lutheran Hospital to provide high-quality, compassionate care.

Lutheran Hospital is in the final phase of expanding its emergency department, which began construction on a new, $17.5 million emergency department July 17, 2013.

The expansion will double the size of the current emergency department to 14,000 square feet and will add seven beds, making a total of 21 beds, each with their own private room.
