Our Emergency Care Department is staffed with physicians that work around the clock, side-by-side with skilled, licensed registered nurses. All of our physicians and registered nursing staff have advanced training in both adult and pediatric trauma care and cardiac care. The McKenzie Health System Emergency team offers unsurpassed patient care, anytime day or night.
Emergency Care works closely with our Diagnostic Imaging, Laboratory and Cardiopulmonary staff to maximize the emergency care you receive.
Advanced telemedicine at McKenzie Health System connects our Emergency Center to the St. Johns Neuroscience Center of Excellence, a facility that is nationally certified as a Primary Stroke Center. Using advanced robotic technology, specialists there help McKenzie staff evaluate and treat stroke patients. Until now, this level of highly specialized stroke care was not available in the Sanilac County area.
McKenzie’s Telemedicine program allows stroke patients to receive immediate, advanced care without wasting critical time travelling to another area.
The use of telemedicine devices, once a novelty, is now standard medical practice in daily use throughout the world and is ideal for emergency situations such as stroke.
McKenzie Health System is concerned about the welfare of our community. In the face of growing prescription medication addiction, overdose, and deaths, our Emergency Care Department is restricting the dispensing of narcotic and sedative medications, such as Oxycodone and Oxycontin, for chronic pain complaints. McKenzie’s Oxy-Free ED Policy is available upon request.
From unexpected minor injuries to emergency assistance managing chronic illness, it’s comforting to know that the McKenzie Emergency Care Department is trained to provide the urgent care you need.
