We are ready for anything - 24 hours a day
More than 85,000 patients will come to Intermountain Medical Center's emergency department each year. Some people call it the "Emergency Room," but it is really a large and busy department. We have 56 beds, including four trauma bays. All ED beds and bays are designed for easy access, continual monitoring, and patient privacy protection.
Our beautiful and modern facility is one of the newest Emergency Departments in the state and features some of the most advanced equipment and technology available. Our skilled team of physicians, nurses, and other specialists are friendly, caring, and well-trained.
The Emergency Department is located on the first floor of the J. L. Sorenson Patient Tower. The entrance is on the east side of the hospital's campus off of State Street, near Costco. Here are some ways we stand out:
Advanced Trauma Care
We offer some of the most efficient care in the country compared to other large Level I trauma centers. We treat more than 3,000 trauma patients every year from all over Utah with excellent outcomes. Learn more
Heart Attack and Stroke Care
We partner with the skilled team at Intermountain Medical Center’s Heart Institute
to provide fast and superior care for patients suffering from heart attacks and our Neurosciences Institute
for stroke care. We far exceed national efficiency standards for care of heart attack and stroke victims. We provide some of the fastest care from the time you enter the ED until your heart attack or stroke is treated. That shorter time means heart muscle saved, brain cells saved, and lives saved.
In addition to quick care, our stroke and heart attack outcomes are substantially better than the national average. We pride ourselves in our efficient care, but we also pride ourselves in providing some of the highest quality of care for heart attacks and strokes in the country.
Other Specialty Programs
In addition to our superior trauma care and cardiovascular care, our Emergency Department excels in the care of those who are critically ill and people suffering from serious orthopedic injuries. We offer rapid workups with super-specialized care. We are ready to handle anything.
