Acute Care

Our Acute Care has sixty-six (66) acute beds located on the first and second floors. Nursing care is provided by our staff of professional registered nurses and licensed practical nurses under the guidance of your physician. They are further assisted by certified nursing assistants and unit clerks.

Though your medical care is of primary importance, our team of caring professionals will do everything possible to make you as comfortable as possible during your stay and will treat your family and other visitors with the utmost courtesy.


Your admission to the hospital is requested by your physician who is a member of the hospital medical staff.  As a patient, your first experience with the staff and services of Emanuel Medical Center will most likely be with our registration office.  You will be asked information which is necessary to complete an accurate, up‐to-date file.  You will also be asked to sign several forms, and you will be given information about Advance Directives during your admission process.
