Our Emergency Department is staffed 24 hours, 7 days a week by an ED Physician. Our hospital is unique due to our size and accessibility and we therefore pride ourselves on our low emergency department wait times and our ability to give patients access to a doctor quickly.
- 24/7 Emergency Department
- Level II Cardiac Center
- Level III Stroke Center
- Level IV Trauma Care
At Summit Pacific we have the ability to stabilize critically injured patients and transport them to larger trauma facilities by either ambulance or helicopter. Stopping at Summit Pacific for stabilization has been instrumental in saving the lives of heart attack and stroke victims and those with traumatic injuries.
Summit Pacific Medical Center is a member of Southwest Washington’s Telestroke Network. This network provides possible stroke patients that opportunity to come to Summit Pacific at the first signs of stroke, but still be seen immediately by a neurologist from Providence St. Peter Hospital’s certified stroke center through advanced video technology.
Please use the driveway and parking lot located off of Young Street when visiting the Emergency Department.
Sexual Assault Exams
Summit Pacific now offers sexual assault exams through the emergency department for individuals 14 years of age and older that have been victims of sexual assault. Acute SANE exams are intended for victims who have suffered an assault within the past 120 hours (5 days). Specially trained nurses and providers will offer an exam that documents the history of the assault, examines for acute injuries, documents findings to include photography and forensic evidence collection when appropriate, and provides treatment to reduce the chances of sexually transmitted disease and pregnancy.
SANE exams are available without a referral and forensic exam fees are covered by Crime Victims Compensation. Staff can assist victims in filing a police report and connecting with advocacy and counseling services. Children and younger teens will be referred to the Sexual Assault Clinic in Lacey for treatment and services.
To learn more about SANE services, call 360-346-2274.
