Emergencies can happen anytime, anywhere. Harrison Community Hospital's Emergency Department is open 24 hours, seven days a week, providing professional medical attention.
When a critical injury or trauma merits more advanced care, the on-site helipad provides a landing site for rapid transfer via medical helicopter to Pittsburgh, Columbus, Cleveland and Akron area medical centers.
The Emergency Department also serves as an Outpatient Department where physical exams, pre-employment testing and diagnostic treatments are performed.
WHAT IS A TRUE EMERGENCY?
If you or a loved one thinks you need emergency care, come to the emergency department and have a doctor examine you. It's better to be cautious than to risk your health. Also, consider these warning signs:
Sudden, severe pain, such as a headache or stomachache
Head or back injuries
Bleeding, vomiting or constant diarrhea
Loss of consciousness
Major burns or cuts
Confusion, difficulty waking up, difficult or garbled speech
