Emergency Department

Roosevelt General Hospital Emergency Department (ED) is a seven bed facility that treats 9,000 patients annually. Your ED team consists of physicians, nurses, and paramedics and other healthcare professionals to meet your needs. Our staff is trained and equipped to provide excellent patient care.

Roosevelt General Hospital is a state certified Level IV Trauma Center. Level IV Trauma Centers are vital links to rural New Mexico. This state designation confirms RGH has specific standards of care for our trauma patients and ED staff. The response to trauma is time critical. Patient outcomes are dependent upon having a plan in place. Level IV hospitals' primary role is to provide initial evaluation, assessment, stabilization and transfer of critical trauma patients to higher level trauma centers.

Overcrowding and long wait times in emergency rooms occur in hospitals throughout the U.S. RGH has a door to doctor time less than 30 minutes in the Emergency Department. This is the time from patient registration to the time a patient is seen by a physician. This is just an average. Patients can wait much less or much longer before receiving care, based on many factors. The door to doctor time will be impacted by the number and severity of patients being cared for in the other treatment rooms. However, Roosevelt General Hospital is still ahead of the national average for "door to doctor" times in the Emergency Department.
