Emergency Services

Northern Cochise Community Hospital provides a 24-hour a day, seven days a week, board certified physician staffed emergency department with specially trained nurses and ER techs.

Our emergency department was state certified as a Level IV Trauma Center on December 4, 2008. NCCH was the third facility in the state to accomplish this certification! In 2015, the emergency department participated in recertification for the Level IV Trauma designation; we passed with NO deficiencies!

A Level IV Trauma Center provides the important first steps in the care of a trauma patient: initial evaluation, stabilization, diagnostics, and when appropriate, transfer to a higher level of care. The State of Arizona, along with many others, has formed this trauma center coordination program in order to improve trauma care on every level, and NCCH is proud to be part of the program.

We have also earned a Pediatric Emergency Prepared Certification. This means that we are prepared to receive and treat pediatric emergencies. NCCH is proud of the strides we have made to expand our ability to provide much needed emergency care to the residents of Northeastern Cochise County.

Emergency Care Services

Our nurses and physicians treat all types of injuries and illnesses in the emergency room. We also treat patients of all ages. Patients with severe and multiple injuries are stabilized and, if necessary, can be transported to receive additional attention and support. Ambulance services are vital in emergency situations and we are prepared for the unexpected with coverage through the area. If you encounter an emergency, contact your local authorities by dialing 911.
