Emergency Room
At Crouse Hospital, we understand a trip to a hospital Emergency Department is not something you plan or even wish to do. But, when you need prompt emergency care, we’re here for you, seven days a week, 24-hours a day.

Our Pomeroy Emergency Services Department cares for more than 82,000 patients each year. These patients benefit from our high-tech facilities and the skilled physicians, nurses and technicians who have been specially trained to deal with all adult and child medical emergencies, including rapid stabilization of heart attacks, strokes, trauma, poisoning, severe bleeding and other sudden illnesses and accidents.
