In an emergency, immediate access to care is vital. At White River Medical Center, Stone County Medical Center, and WRMC Medical Complex our staff is always ready. When you come to the Emergency Department it is important to remember patients are seen based on the severity of their illness or injury. Your condition will be assessed by the triage staff and monitored continuously until you are taken to a treatment room.

Trauma Care

Our healthcare system is working with the Arkansas Department of Health as a statewide trauma system is developed. White River Medical Center is a Level III Trauma Center and Stone County Medical Center is a Level IV Trauma Center.  All WRHS Emergency facilities are a part of Arkansas's trauma network designed to improve the care of patients across the state by providing access to the most appropriate care as quickly as possible.

Arkansas Saves Program

Stroke is a leading cause of death and disability in Arkansas. White River Medical Center, Stone County Medical Center, and the WRMC Medical Complex ER partner with the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) to improve access to the appropriate care for stroke patients. Emergency Department physicians and clinical staff communicate with on-call specialists using a real-time video connection which provides access to important diagnostic information for timely diagnosis and allow physicians to initiate appropriate treatment.
