Features of Our Emergency Department
Wadley’s Emergency Department is uniquely staffed by emergency medicine physicians and a dedicated staff of nursing personnel, all who are ACLS, TNCC, and ENPC trained.
Our Emergency Department is Texarkana’s first hospital designated as a Level III Advanced Trauma Center in the State of Texas and Arkansas. Our Advanced Trauma Center offers:
- Experienced physicians and nurses trained in trauma care
- Up-to-date equipment, including bedside sonography which, allows the physician to take a ‘quick look” and identify serious conditions quickly.
- Primary Stroke Service Provider. Our highly trained staff is able to recognize the signs and symptoms of acute stroke to ensure the best possible outcomes for patients. We are the only hospital in Texarkana to have a neurologist physically available to see patients in the Emergency Department and the only hospital in Texarkana and only the seventh in the State of Texas to receive the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines® – Stroke Gold Plus Achievement Award with Target: Stroke(SM) Honor Roll Elite Plus.
- Rapid Medical Exam Unit (RME). Our RME Unit allows non-emergent patients to be seen faster, allows for better flow of emergent and critical patients through the main Emergency Department.
