Emergency Medicine


We understand the importance of staffing our Emergency Department with physicians who are specially trained in Emergency Medicine. Our medical staff is ready to handle every situation from simple sutures or broken bones, to life-threatening illness or injury.  The emergency room is located at the north end of the hospital and fully staffed 24 hours, every day of the year. We are in constant touch by radio to coordinate ambulance service and are affiliated with three air ambulance services, keeping Ransom Memorial Hospital within minutes of major trauma facilities.

We have worked hard to focus on meeting your expectations and have recently received a Trauma IV designation as well as a Women’s Choice Award for Emergency Care.

Coming Summer 2017!
