Emergency Services at Sentara RMH Medical Center

At some point in our lives, we all experience a medical emergency. From your child’s unexpected fall at the playground, to your mom’s complaints of chest pain, health emergencies happens, and they happen fast. Statistics prove that immediate access to quality care makes a lifesaving difference for patients. The Sentara RMH Emergency Department (ED) is responsible for the immediate treatment of any medical or surgical emergency, for initiating life-saving procedures in all types of emergency situations, and for providing emergency care for everything from complex medical problems to minor injuries and illnesses.

At the Sentara RMH Emergency Department (ED), some patients are treated in the main ED, while others with less serious illnesses or injuries are treated in a separate area called Focus Care. ED patients are treated in order of priority in each of these separate areas, based upon a triage assessment performed by an RN.

If you are having a life-threatening emergency, call 911 immediately.
