Emergency Department

In an emergency, every minute counts.  That’s why Rooks County Health Center has a professional health team ready to offer quality medical care.  As a small, rural hospital, RCH maintains a highly skilled and trained staff ready and able to care for any medical emergency.

Equipped with state of the art medical equipment, our staff provides personalized attention to each patient. City-based ambulances serve Plainville and the surrounding communities around the clock.  While most transfers from RCH are by ambulance, patients with life-threatening cases are transferred via air ambulance.

At RCH, we treat our patients like family.  We know that living in a rural area means our patients are our family members, friends and neighbors. We know that visits to the emergency room are difficult and frightening.  We do our best to make patients and visitors comfortable and safe.
