What conditions are treated at an ER?

Typical patients range from those with chest pain, trauma or abdominal pain to those with headaches or stroke. The ERs at Trident and Summerville Medical Centers both offer “fast track” services for expedient care of patients less critically ill.

For more severe conditions, like heart attacks or strokes, our emergency rooms offer fast diagnoses as well as advanced technology and expertise to treat severely injured and critically ill patients.
