Mercy's expertise is never more evident than in emergency situations. Our Emergency Department has expanded with more space and functionality than ever before. As a certified Level II trauma center, Mercy Hospital Joplin's Emergency Department is prepared to care for you whether you suffer a heart attack, stroke or physical trauma.
The Emergency Department has 21 exam rooms, 6 trauma rooms, 5 behavioral health rooms and 3 triage rooms, and a large, comfortable waiting area.
At any time, day or night, we have surgeons and anesthesiologists ready to tend to you or your loved one, plus quick access to physicians in orthopedics, neurosurgery, internal medicine and other specialties. We equip our staff with top of the line cardiac monitoring systems, enabling them to take care of even the most critical patients. And, when seconds count, we offer Mercy Life Line air medical service with the most experienced pilots and staff, and two on-site helipads.
The Emergency Department at Mercy now has the same care you've come to trust, but now offers the newest equipment and facilities to ensure you receive the best care in the region.
