Emergency Services from Mary Washington Healthcare

Mary Washington Healthcare operates four emergency departments at Mary Washington Hospital, Stafford Hospital, the Emergency Department at Lee’s Hill, and our newest location, the Emergency Department at Harrison Crossing. These full-service emergency departments are open 24/7 year round for patient convenience. The four locations treat an average of 100,000 patients each year. Our staff includes board-certified emergency physicians and emergency-trained nurses. We see patients in order of acuity with a focus on life, limb, and eyesight emergencies. We routinely treat patients suffering from chest pain, fractures, electrical shock, respiratory trouble, eye injuries, stroke symptoms, poisoning, and more.

Medical Forensic Exam Services

If you are a victim of a crime, our first priority at Mary Washington Healthcare is making sure you receive the immediate healthcare services and emotional support you need. You may also receive services from a separate team of specially-trained forensic nurse examiners (FNE) to ensure important evidence is collected. The use of forensic nurse examiners provides high quality medical and forensic documentation and evidence collection which may lead to a more positive criminal justice outcome.
