Contact Us

No one expects to be in an accident or any other emergency situation. The Cobre Valley Regional Medical Center Emergency Department is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days per year to meet your emergency healthcare needs.

Here in Your Time of Need

The emergency department has over 8,000 square feet and 10 treatment rooms, in addition to a consultation room, making it well equipped to handle the emergency care and stabilization of our patients.

Whether you arrive by ambulance or private vehicle, you will be assessed right away by a highly trained medical caregiver to determine the severity of your illness or injury. Patients with more serious problems are seen first. Unlike a doctor’s office, the emergency department does not accept appointments. Instead, ill or injured patients often arrive at the same time, causing a wait for those with less serious emergencies.

Seeking Emergency Care

If you have questions regarding your healthcare, please contact your primary care physician or call your insurance company’s “800” number for direction.

If you feel that you need to be seen immediately, please proceed to the Emergency Center at the hospital. In cases that seem life-threatening, call 911 for evaluation and transport by Emergency Medical Services personnel (EMS).

Do not call the emergency center for medical advice.

Know How to Spot an Emergency

It’s difficult to give concrete guidelines for determining whether your condition is a true emergency. Every situation is unique.

Remember: If you think someone could suffer significant harm or die unless prompt care is received, that situation is an emergency.

However, the following conditions are almost ALWAYS emergencies and require immediate attention:

  • Heart attack symptoms (pain in chest, neck, arm or shoulder)
  • Stroke symptoms (difficulty talking, blurred vision, dizziness, sudden weakness of one of your arms or legs especially if on only one side of the body)
  • Severe shortness of breath
  • Severe pain that persists
  • Major or uncontrolled bleeding
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Severe burns or cuts
