  • All of our nurses are specially trained in providing emergency adult and pediatric care, as well as in trauma and resuscitation.
  • Allen is an award winning heart hospital. We are recognized as a Primary Stroke Center by the Joint Commission, and an accredited Chest Pain Center with PCI by the Society of Chest Pain Centers.

Care Coordination in the Emergency Department

When you are sent home or admitted to the hospital, your health record and the results of your tests are sent directly to your primary care provider through our computer system.

Social workers are stationed in the Emergency Department to help you and your doctor make sure you have everything you need, and they assist in planning for your needs when you go home.

A pharmacist is stationed in the Emergency Department to help get your medication list correct. They can also help get your prescriptions, even before you go home.

Many specialists are available to the Emergency Department for consultation, including pediatrics, orthopedics, gastroenterology, surgery, neurology, psychiatry and others.
