emergency services

The Emergency Department is equipped to respond to any kind of emergency.

The Emergency Department at KCH is staffed and equipped for emergencies and patient services 24 hours a day 7 days a week.  A physician is on call at all times.  Our nurses have advanced training in Cardiac Life Support, Trauma, Pediatrics, and Stroke.  We take the needs of our community very seriously and strive to do what is necessary to provide superior care. 

The Emergency Department treats approximately 2700 patients annually, which includes travelers at nearby locations such as, Coral Pink Sand Dunes, Grand Canyon, Lake Powell, Grand Staircase National Monument, and various hiking, biking, horse and ATV trails.

Space is limited in the Emergency Department and due to privacy issues we ask that visitors are limited to one per patient in the Emergency Department. Priority is given to the most seriously ill or injured and then care is based on the order of patient sign-in. Space is limited so we ask that only one visitor be allowed at the bedside, however, in the case of small children both parents may come into the ER.

During flu season (October – May), children under the age of 14 are not allowed in patient care areas unless being treated.  This is for the safety of your children, as well as the safety of our patients.  There may be further restrictions when RSV cases are present. In the waiting room for additional visitors there are drink and snack vending machines along with a T.V.

Medical advice can not be given over the phone.

If you’re experiencing an emergency, call 9-1-1.
