Emergency Services

McAlester Regional Health Center hopes that you or your family never require Emergency Services, but we understand that sometimes, life happens, and you deserve Emergency Room care that you can depend on. We are one of two Trauma Centers located in Southeast Oklahoma, and you can rest assured that you’ll receive quality emergency care close to home.

As a Level III Trauma Center, McAlester Regional Health Center is equipped with on-call specialty physicians who can provide general surgery, orthopedics, anesthesia, and obstetrics services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Upon arrival, an Emergency Room physician immediately evaluates trauma patients to determine what services are needed and consults with the appropriate specialist. From there, the specialist will come see the patient within twenty minutes of the call.

Our dedicated service has not gone unnoticed. McAlester Regional Health Center’s Emergency Department received the Sustained Service award for clinical excellence from the VHA Oklahoma/Arkansas Regional Office. Based on a year’s worth of operational data, this award recognized the ER for maintaining a level of performance equal to or greater than the CDC benchmarks for the number or percentage of patients who left the ER without being seen, or improved overall length of stay in the ER. McAlester Regional Health Center is dedicated to continuing to provide excellent Emergency Services that the Southeast Oklahoma community can trust.
