Our emergency medical care
We provide complete emergency services at our ER, including:
Heart attack care
Our ER physicians and cardiologists save lives by partnering with local Utah County medical response teams to more quickly diagnose and treat heart attacks. We do this by assessing heart attacks while patients are still in transit to the hospital, in the ambulance, using 12-lead electrocardiogram (EKG) technology.
This transmits information straight to the ER, allowing us to determine if a heart attack has occurred and where in the heart the damage is located. Our ER staff and specialists then have a treatment plan ready and a medical team assembled before the patient even arrives.
A patient who undergoes this diagnosis in the ambulance can then bypass the ER triage process and go straight to the cardiac catheterization laboratory (cath lab). There, a medical team stands prepared to treat the patient right away, saving time and reducing long-term damage to the heart muscle.
Pediatric emergency care
Our ER includes trained clinicians and special equipment to diagnose and treat kids and teens who are experiencing medical emergencies. This allows us to expedite their care and keep your child, and you, as comfortable as possible during these difficult situations.
The Utah Department of Health's Bureau of Emergency Medical Services and Preparedness has designated Mountain View Hospital - Payson as a Level IV Trauma Center. To earn this designation, our trauma team actively advocates for trauma system development, enhances our emergency services and works to deliver care more quickly and efficiently.
This program also serves as an educational and clinical resource for local and regional trauma service providers, including physicians, nurses, paramedics and other clinical personnel.
