The Emergency Department of Southern New Hampshire Medical Center provides culturally competent care to the diverse population of Southern New Hampshire with a 30-bed, critical care unit. In addition to supporting the community as a Level III Trauma Center, and Primary Accredited Stroke Facility, the ED has taken proactive steps to provide safe care to our psychiatric population through the implementation of a 6-bed secured intradepartmental unit. With increased patient volumes and higher acuity, the ED is prepared to accommodate additional patients through utilization of hallway beds and a triage fast-track area. We support and take pride in providing numerous educational opportunities for our staff to pursue board certifications and higher education in addition to the advanced technical skills they provide, such as ultrasound guided IV placement and arterial IV line management.
