Emergency Room Services

Clinical Decision Unit

The Clinical Decision Unit at Palmetto General is an observation area that provides ongoing patient care, short-term treatment, diagnostic testing, and assessment. Observation services are commonly ordered for patients who enter the Emergency Department and who require more time for the physician to determine if they need additional inpatient treatment or may be safely discharged. This new unit will help support the hospital's emergency services and the efficient care transition of patients as they are assessed and potentially admitted.

Advanced Cardiovascular Services

Your heart is your engine. If it stops working properly, you feel exhausted, uncomfortable and frustrated. You could even land in the emergency room with a heart attack. But getting your heart in shape is easier than you might think. The right heart treatments can vastly improve your quality of life, helping you breathe easier, move faster and feel younger. Here are a few of our advanced heart and vascular services:
  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
