Emergency Department

The Emergency Department at North Hawaii Community Hospital is here to take care of your health needs, big or small.  And whenever you need it.  Our Emergency Department is staffed 24/7 by physicians and registered nurses who are specially trained in emergency medicine to provide high quality services and compassionate care.

The Emergency Department has a wide range of equipment and offers patients access to extensive diagnostic testing labs and technology, emergency medical physicians, specially trained nurses, and other healthcare professionals. We are also the designated Level III Trauma Center for the North Hawaii region. Click here to learn more about our Trauma Center.


What to Expect When You Arrive

When you arrive for treatment at the Emergency Department, your condition will be evaluated by a physician.  The Emergency Department physician may order tests necessary to diagnose your condition (laboratory, X-rays, etc.), and if you need specialty treatment, one of our consulting specialists will be called.  Because of the nature of emergency medicine, the most critically ill or injured will be seen first.  If you are waiting, you will be kept updated as to when you can be expected to be seen.

Please be prepared to provide pertinent information about your medical history including medicines you are taking, allergies, and a summary of your past illnesses, injuries and surgeries. This information allows our medical team to give you appropriate treatment.
