When Every Second Counts, Count On Us

 

At the Pleasant Valley Hospital Emergency and Trauma Center, we know that every second counts in an emergency. From chest pains to broken bones to major trauma, the PVH Emergency and Trauma Center has the knowledge and experience to treat patients of all ages effectively and efficiently.

 

The only Level IV and certified Always Ready for Kids (ARK) trauma center  in the region, Pleasant Valley Hospital has specially trained physicians and nurses who evaluate, stabilize and diagnose trauma patients. All emergency physicians and nurses have been trained and certified in trauma care and are able to provide advanced trauma life support when patients must be transferred to a higher-level trauma center. When a patient requires transport to the Burn Intensive Care Unit at Cabell Huntington Hospital, the only burn unit in the state of West Virginia, Pleasant Valley Hospital’s partnership with Cabell Huntington Hospital ensures a swift and seamless transition.

 

With a surgeon and anesthesiologist on call 24 hours a day, a skilled team of hospitalists, a critical care intensivist/pulmonologist and other highly trained specialists, a team approach to care begins as soon as patients arrive at the PVH Emergency and Trauma Center. The center’s “Fast Track” area, directed by nurse practitioners, decreases wait times by serving patients with easily treatable illnesses and injuries in a timely manner and freeing up physicians and specialists to provide care where they’re needed most.

 

When every second counts, you can count on the Emergency and Trauma Center at Pleasant Valley Hospital – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
