Our emergency room (ER) is located at 1805 North Hennepin Avenue in Glencoe. ER patients should check in at the hospital entrance. Patients with minor illnesses or injuries may be transferred to our urgent care department.
In a life-threatening emergency, always call 911.
Our ER has been designated a Level III trauma center by the Minnesota Department of Health, which means we have ready resources to handle severe injuries. In May 2014, GRHS was recognized for excellence in trauma care by Hennepin County Medical Center.
Our ER offers sophisticated care when our patients need it most, staffed 24/7 by GRHS physicians. Three full time family medicine physicians who specialize in emergency care are dedicated to the care of emergency room patients. Our ER team includes Dr. James Jessen, Dr. Liban Hired and Dr. Mitch Palmer.
GRHS also provides Advanced Life Support ambulance service in partnership with Allina Health. Our paramedics have the skills, training, licensure and medical supervision to begin the process of diagnosing, stabilizing and treating patients in the field, before their arrival at the ER.
We provide 24/7 access to telemedicine consultations with pediatric emergency medicine specialists at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota.
