When minutes matter in an emergency, you want to know you are getting the best care as quickly as possible. The Terre Haute Regional Hospital emergency room is prepared to handle any medical emergency you have, any time of day.
We do our best to make each emergency room visit as quick and comfortable as possible. Our physicians are board certified in emergency medicine and have additional training to care for kids. We were also the first hospital in Wabash Valley to become an accredited chest pain center, which means we are prepared for heart emergencies like heart attacks or arrhythmias.
If your or someone you know is experiencing an emergency always call 911 first.
If you have questions, please call one of our nurses, available 24/7, at (812) 237-1200.
Sometimes it is hard to know if you should seek emergency care, urgent care or schedule an appointment with your provider. Please see our Coming to the ER guide for more information about when to seek emergency care.
Specialized emergency pediatric care
Artemis medication system
When children have medical emergencies, medical staff must act quickly, always keeping safety at the forefront. Instead of using the simplistic, yet effective, Broselow Tape color-coded tool to provide proper medication dosing for children, Terre Haute Regional Hospital has implemented the Artemis system. This system adds a new level of safety when it comes to giving kids the right amount of medicine. The Artemis system is designed to speed up calculations and reduce mistakes when children arrive or are transferred around the emergency room and hospital.
While the Broselow Tape system works, our emergency room staff wanted to do whatever possible to make medication dosage even safer for children. The Artemis system presents information in a simple, color-coded table format for quick identification and accuracy.
