The TMC Emergency Department is the busiest Emergency Department in Southern Arizona, seeing at least 95,000 patients a year between both the adult and pediatric ED. We have a total of 45 beds separated into 4 pods (North, South, East, and West). Patients are placed into pods based on their triage acuity. We follow the Emergency Severity Index (ESI) Guidelines for triage of all ER patients. We see a variety of patients within the department – everything from sore throats and simple lacerations to respiratory failure and STEMI patients. TMC has earned certification as a Comprehensive Stroke Center, accreditation as a Chest Pain Center, and the Gold Plus Achievement Award for stroke programs from the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. There is a separate Behavioral Health Observation Unit located within the Emergency Department. The ED embraces the Lean Methodology and strives for a culture of continuous process improvement to create the best patient care experience for our community and a work environment that excels in teamwork and collaboration. All nurses are required to be CPR, ACLS, PALS, CPI and NIHSS certified.
