Orem Community Hospital's Emergency Department provides 24-hour emergency treatment, seven days a week. We offer our community compassionate attention from our highly-trained team of physicians, nurses, technicians and support staff.
The Emergency Department treats patients of all ages – from infants through adults. Patients are seen in order of acuity, meaning those with the most severe conditions are seen first. However, the goal of the department is to have a doctor see every patient within 30 minutes of his or her arrival. All physicians in the ED are board certified in emergency medicine.
The hospital is also a station for Intermountain Life Flight. Through Life Flight, we are able to transport patients and bring highly specialized emergency equipment and medical personnel to remote areas or accident scenes where time is of the essence. The Life Flight crews consist of highly trained nurses, paramedics, respiratory therapists and physicians who provide patients with the best possible care during transport.
