The CHCC Emergency Department staff is comprised of highly trained nurses, physicians, and physician assistants who provide competent emergency, episodic, and trauma care to the residents and visitors of the CNMI. Emergency care is provided to all who seek services regardless of age, sex, disability, religious beliefs, political beliefs, cultural background, educational levels, national origin, or ability to pay.
A team of board-certified doctors, registered nurses, and other specially trained staff are available at all times to treat anyone seeking emergency medical care. Their services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Everyone can access the services of the emergency department, although persons with non-emergent care needs are encouraged to seek evaluation and treatment through the outpatient clinics as needed. The CHCC Emergency Department entryway is reserved primarily for patients arriving by ambulance. However, if a patient arrives at the ambulance bay by vehicle, a nurse from the department will meet them at the door to assist them in accessing services.
The CHCC Emergency Department has been designed to enhance every aspect of a patient-centered care experience. The clinical area features the latest technologies in healthcare to complement our world class providers.
