When it comes to emergency services, EMSTAR has become synonymous with superior emergency care and is considered the premier emergency services provider in the Ohio Valley—two hospitals, one team using state-of-the-art equipment and technology to ensure patients the finest ER care in the region.
Our highly trained staff takes pride in the fact they are part of the Ohio Valley’s only team of board-certified physicians and nurses. Year in and year out, EMSTAR treats more patients than any other emergency department in the Ohio Valley.
In addition, EMSTAR is home to the Valley’s first digital patient-tracking system. This state-of-the-art, lifesaving technology allows the EMSTAR team to provide more efficient treatment for the patients and their families. In a matter of 20 seconds of registration, our team has access to a patient’s personal medical information allowing for expedient diagnosis and treatment.
Emergency medicine is an ever-changing field, and to be able to continue to offer the area’s best emergency care, OVMC/EORH is dedicated to making all the necessary financial investments required to meet this challenge. A goal of $2 million has been set for the purchase of nurses monitoring system beds, ER carts and portable cardiac monitors, allowing the two hospitals to continue to keep the lofty status as the Ohio Valley’s premier emergency services provider.
