- Emergency Department
Our board-certified physicians and clinical personnel provide a full complement of emergency services, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. And for an added level of convenience, our SmartER program lets you schedule an emergency room appointment in advance, so you can cut down the amount of time you’ll spend in our waiting room.
We have 12 emergency treatment rooms—with two dedicated to critical patients—and our facility also features isolation and decontamination areas, plus a helipad on site for LifeStar medical helicopter transports.
- Paramedic Services
Middlesex Health paramedics provide critical treatment in the field, working alongside fire and EMS personnel throughout our service area. The Middlesex Health paramedic service is one of only three such hospital–based services in the state.
Middlesex Health paramedics provide emergency medical services to the towns of Marlborough, Colchester, East Haddam and East Hampton, 24 hours a day. Being able to provide these services before a patient in critical condition gets to the Emergency Department is extremely important. Paramedics receive special medical training that enables them to provide an advanced level of emergency medical services.
