RUHS Medical Center Emergency Department (ED) has a significant role in providing emergency medical care in Riverside County. We receive approximately 100,000 patient visits a year.  RUHS Medical Center serves as the first responder in the case of natural disaster for Riverside County. As a designated Level II Trauma Center for adult and pediatric care, the Medical Center treats nearly half of all trauma patients in the County. We take care of 1500 people annually who experience major trauma.  

The medical facility is equipped with a helipad and an on-site decontamination unit, enhancing the hospital’s capacity to handle any type of health care crisis.  

There are six acute trauma beds, three acute cardiac beds and six other specially monitored beds for acute patients. The 25 general exam rooms include a decontamination room, security rooms, an ENT, cast room, and forensic exam room.

The Emergency Department at RUHS Medical Center is dedicated to providing comprehensive emergency care to a diverse adult and pediatric population. Facility expansions for both the ED and Trauma Center are planned for in 2016 to better meet acute and traumatic ​medical needs in the county.​
