Emergency Medicine at Methodist University Hospital is a collaborative effort involving physicians, nurses and EMS professionals.
Affiliated with the University of Tennessee Health Science Center and Columbia University HeartSource as an academic medical center, Methodist University Hospital is committed to providing high quality, evidence-based care, developing best-practices to improve patient outcomes and creating continuing educational opportunities for our team members and community partners.
Methodist University Hospital Emergency Department
Our 35-bed Emergency Department in Memphis, Tennessee provides 24-hour emergency care and state-of-the-art diagnostic capabilities to approximately 57,000 adult patients each year in the Memphis area.
The Emergency Department also serves as a receiving facility for patients needing specialized services offered through Methodist University Hospital, such as the Transplant Institute, Brain and Spine Institute, and Cardiovascular Institute. As an accredited chest pain center and certified primary stroke center, Methodist University Hospital is specially equipped to handle patients needing a higher level of care.
In addition to our outstanding STEMI outreach program, Methodist University Hospital’s Emergency Department was the first hospital in the Mid-South region to implement Induced Hypothermia for cardiac arrest patients (commonly referred to as “Dr. Ice”) and has since expanded the program to our other Methodist hospitals, regional hospital networks and EMS pre-hospital treatments.
