Our emergency medical team is here to provide the highest level of quality care to our patients. Nearly 37,000 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 completed their $17.5 million emergency department expansion on April 21, 2015. The expansion doubled 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. Other features of the expansion include:

  • Six behavioral health rooms with rolling walls to stow medical equipment for patient safety.
  • More visible entrance, making it easier for our community to access emergency services.
  • Split-flow triage and treatment area to expedite patient care.
  • Additional X-ray machine and CT equipment to provide faster testing.
  • Built-in decontamination room for emergency preparedness.

This expansion of emergency care services marks a significant investment in Lutheran Hospital, Ohio City, and the City of Cleveland.
