Emergencies are never planned. Emergency room visits can be.

When you need immediate medical attention, Emanuel Medical Center’s fully accredited, emergency room is here to help. The doctors and nurses are available every day, 24 hours a day, to treat a wide range of problems, from broken bones and sprained ankles to life-threatening emergencies such as heart attacks and strokes. Other benefits the Emanuel ER can offer you:

  • The only designated receiving center for heart attack patients between Modesto and Fresno
  • Online ER check-in for non-life-threatening emergencies

Advanced heart and stroke care

If you have a heart attack or stroke, timing is critical. Our emergency team stands ready for such events and has protocols in place to assure heart and stroke patients receive lifesaving treatment as quickly as possible.

Emanuel is proud to be designated as an official receiving center for heart attack patients, which means you can rest assured that, should you ever need it, high quality emergency care for heart attacks is available close to home, right here serving the Stanislaus and Merced counties, and surrounding communities.

A heart attack happens when the blood vessels that deliver oxygen and nutrients to the heart become blocked. When you can get medical care to clear the blockage quickly, the heart has a good chance of recovering. Without quick medical care, damage could be permanent.
