Accessing the campus and our Emergency Department is convenient however, in an emergency always remember to dial 911.

The emergency physicians of EPSS and the Board of Trustees, The Executive Team, physicians and staff of Proctor Hospital all share the same mission and vision. It is a shared commitment to our patients who depend on our confidence to care for them; a trust in each other that we are like family; and that as caregivers we consistently demonstrate a caring compassion. There is a difference in emergency service at Proctor.

The emergency physician requires a breadth of knowledge and advanced procedural skills- the skills of many specialists. While every medical specialty is unique, the emergency department may present one of the most unpredictable environments in medicine. EPSS physicians are American Board of Emergency Medicine certified, or Board-eligible, and trained in emergency medicine.
