About Finley's Emergency Services 

More than 25,000 patients are cared for each year in our Emergency Department. That kind of care is made possible by an intricate choreography of skills, services and equipment that come together to provide medical care that is always mindful of the patient's needs. At Finley Hospital you aren't a number, but rather our number-one priority.

Our Emergency Department has 16 private treatment rooms, including two advanced trauma rooms, behavioral health rooms and a gynecology room. The Emergency Department has an efficient work and patient flow to improve patient triage, treatment, and satisfaction. Leading edge laboratory and radiology services located within steps of the Emergency Department provide comfort and privacy for the patient and family and add to the overall efficiency of our emergency services.

With a experienced team of physicians, dedicated and specially trained nurses, and immediate access to surgical and cardiology personnel , our emergency services team can respond rapidly, appropriately and efficiently to any health care emergency.

Door to Balloon Time

The American Heart Association recommends a "door-to-balloon" time of 90 minutes or less from the patient's arrival at the hospital until angioplasty is performed. However, at UnityPoint Health - Finley Hospital, our goal  is to achieve that in less than 60 minutes. We know every second counts and that's why we've designed our Emergency Department to get patients to the fastest treatment possible. Watch our behind the scenes tour of the ER and Cath Lab to see why we continue to have excellent door-to-balloon times.
