Our Emergency Department offers quality, efficient emergency services and urgent care 24 hours a day. And thanks to our Comprehensive Assessment, Review and Disposition (CARD) room, we're expediting the treatment of acute illnesses and injuries. In the CARD room, patients can watch TV, read and enjoy the soothing murals painted by local artist Dena Blake while undergoing testing and treatment. Our Emergency Department works closely with the hospital's Chest Pain Observation Unit. This, in turn, helps free additional services for non-cardiac patients.
Remember: In a medical emergency, don't wait. Call 9-1-1 right away.
Chest Pain Center
The Chest Pain Observation Unit at Desert Springs Hospital was the first in Nevada to be nationally recognized by the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care for meeting or exceeding national care standards for acute cardiac medicine.
The Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care's goal is to reduce mortality from heart attacks by teaching the public to recognize and react to the early symptoms of a heart attack and to reduce the time that it takes to receive treatment.
