Have you seen us lately?

We are nearly at the end of the major renovation and expansion of the Lutheran Medical Center Emergency Department. If you have seen or experienced the difference, I hope it was the best possible experience for emergency care.

Throughout the phases of construction, our staff and physicians have done an amazing job of creating a calm healing environment. The physical changes—new patient entry, new Senior ER, new Fast-Track section and new Behavioral Health treatment area—are fresh and inviting. Nevertheless, it’s our amazing people who will be there for you around the clock when you or a loved one needs them.

Whatever accident or illness might cause you to come to our ED, we are prepared to give you the right treatment at the right time in the most comfortable environment possible. We have specialists on site or on call at all times, such as our orthopedic hospitalists. Lutheran is a Primary Stroke Center and a Level III Trauma Center, as well as an accredited Chest Pain Center. In fact, we recently received the highest level of recognition for quality and timeliness of care for stroke treatment.

At Lutheran, we keep your comfort and well-being as a priority.

Grant Wicklund, President and CEO, Lutheran Medical Center
