Emergency Care

Your Best Medicine is Here When It Matters Most

In a medical emergency, every second counts. That’s why our two emergency departments in north St. Louis County are staffed by a nationally recognized team of health care professionals, who are at the ready 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide the community with the best possible care. In fact, our emergency department enjoys some of the highest patient satisfaction scores in the entire region.

At Christian Hospital and Northwest HealthCare’s two emergency departments, our specially trained emergency staff are equipped to handle the most serious medical emergencies, to get your family the care they need as quickly as possible. 

Heart Attack Care

Our emergency services exceed all state and national best practice averages relating to emergency care for heart attack and congestive heart failure — thanks in part to our HeartWatch team, who coordinate with EMS to prepare for quick and potentially life-saving action in the event of a heart attack. Learn more about about advanced heart and vascular care at Christian Hospital.

Stroke Care

Certified as a Joint Commission Primary Stroke Center, Christian Hospital is recognized for its excellence in stroke care. We work in close coordination with the neurology and EMS teams to provide stroke patients with immediate access to brain imaging scans, evaluations with neurologists and clot-busting medication, should it be necessary. Find out more about our stroke care.

Emergency Medical Service (EMS)

The Christian Hospital EMS department (CHEMS) operates a fleet of advanced life-support ambulances, as well as a heliport, to provide lifesaving services whenever and wherever they’re needed. They work directly with our emergency department staff to ensure a continuity of care in the event of medical emergencies, to improve outcomes whenever possible. Read more about about our paramedics and CHEMS.
