The hospital’s emergency physicians and nurses have 24-hour access to the latest technologies and stand ready to rapidly assess and triage arriving patients. Alameda Hospital’s response to an emergency is immediate and comprehensive. For patients arriving by ambulance, constant communication with the incoming paramedics ensures that the ED team is fully prepared to treat upon arrival.
Skilled nursing facilities provide a range of health services including post-acute care following an inpatient hospital stay and allowing residents to recuperate under the guidance of rehabilitation specialists in preparation for returning home.
