About our Emergency Services
At Ashley Regional Medical Center, our Emergency Room (ER) team is staffed 24/7 with emergency physicians, nurses and staff who are trained in providing emergency care. Our team combines advanced training with compassionate service to be ready for you or your family when you need it the most.
What to Expect in our ER
As a patient, you will be cared for by staff trained to respond to any type of medical emergency. We understand a visit to the ER can be a very stressful time; therefore, you should expect us to communicate with you and guide you through your situation. You should always ask questions if you do not understand.
Quality Emergency Care
The national recognition we’ve earned demonstrates our staff’s commitment to providing the highest quality of care including:

Stroke Receiving Hospital
Ashley Regional Medical Center received the status of "Stroke Receiving Facility" from the Utah Department of Health.
Patients who have a stroke have a small window of opportunity for life-saving treatment. “Clot-busting” medications must be delivered within three hours to prevent further brain damage. The importance of appropriate medical care plays a huge part in this process.
Level IV Trauma Designation
This designation requires full time general surgery and orthopedic care through the hospital emergency room. All ancillary departments, including radiology, must meet certain criteria and standards for trauma patients, including how quickly certain types of x-rays can be completed. A trauma team is designated and trained to respond to trauma cases in the Emergency Room.
Recognize Emergency Symptoms
Two of the most common life-threatening emergencies are heart attacks and strokes. Timely treatment is crucial!
