Welcome to the Mary Washington Hospital Emergency Department at Lee’s Hill, a full-service ambulance-receiving emergency department (ED), open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

 

Staffed with the same skilled physicians and nurses as Mary Washington and Stafford Hospital Emergency Departments, this new state-of-the-art facility is located in the Emergency and Outpatient Center at Lee’s Hill.  We provide a convenient alternative for emergency care.  We treat all patients regardless of their ability to pay.

 

As a member of the Mary Washington Healthcare family, the Emergency Department at Lee’s Hill offers you the same high quality and personalized care you have come to expect at the Mary Washington ED at the main hospital campus.  Also, as part of this large health system, we can ensure that your complete medical record is available and will be updated.

 

Family and Friends in the Treatment Area

  • Up to two visitors can stay with you in the treatment area.  This is at the nurse’s discretion.
  • One of them can update other family and friends in the ED waiting area.
  • Visitors may be asked to leave temporarily if the ED gets extremely busy or crowded.
  • Children under age 18 must have a parent or legal guardian with them at all times.

The ED Team Caring for You

Your care team includes:

  • Physicians

  • Nurses
  • Paramedics and emergency medical technicians (EMTs)
  • Consultant specialists (if necessary)

Our ED physicians are board-certified in Emergency Medicine, and our registered nurses are all highly trained and competent in Emergency Nursing care.  Our support staff is equally skilled, trained, and experienced to meet your needs.  Our entire staff is dedicated to providing you with excellent care, while working to make your visit as comfortable as any emergency medical care visit can be.

 

Before Leaving: Get Your Discharge Instructions

  • We give you instructions on the care you will need after you leave the ED.
