Emergency Services

No one plans to have an accident or develop an urgent medical condition.  Getting medical attention when you most need it can be difficult, especially if you're traveling or do not have a primary care doctor.

St. Luke's 24-hour physician-staffed Emergency Department is equipped to provide life-saving emergency treatment for patients of all ages. St. Luke's ED is Polk County's first choice in emergencies where we provide exceptional care to patients who come through our ED. However, a small percentage needing a higher level of trauma care than we can provide, we maintain close affiliations with area trauma centers should a patient need a higher level of trauma or cardiac care. Polk County EMS and a helipad are located on St. Luke's Hospital's campus.

Care protocols and seamless communications with major centers in Spartanburg, Greenville, Asheville or Charlotte ensure patients who require this high level of care are treated and stabilized at St. Luke's prior to emergency transfer by ambulance or helicopter. Thanks to this coordination of life-saving care, St. Luke's ED team beats the National Standard of 90 minutes for treating, stabilizing and transporting heart attack patients for emergency cardiac care.
