Emergency Room

The Emergency Department at Memorial Hospital of Texas County plays an essential role in caring for the urgent and emergent health needs of Guymon and the surrounding communities.

Our emergency department is staffed 24 hours a day 7 days a week with a physician. The Emergency Room nurses are trained in Trauma, ACLS, PALS and other various skills. Other services that are readily available include respiratory therapy, laboratory technicians, and radiology technicians.

What To Expect When You Arrive At Our Emergency Department:

First, you will be triaged by a qualified nurse. Triage is an examination that tells us how serious your medical condition is when you arrive. Some patients have more serious conditions than others. So triage helps us determine not only how to help each patient, but who to treat first.

We use the three level Triage system:

Emergent - those who have life threatening illness or injury.
Urgent - those who are in stable condition, but need help as soon as possible.
Non-urgent - those who are in stable condition and require minimal treatment or medical attention.
When you request an examination in the Emergency Department, you will be screened to determine whether an emergency medical condition exists. If one does, you will receive stabilizing treatment.

If your condition is unstable, this hospital will not transfer you to another hospital unless the benefit of the transfer outweighs the risk. You will continue receiving stabilizing treatment if arrangements are being made to transfer you to another facility.

MHTC Emergency Department provides outstanding emergency care, and looks forward to serving Guymon, and the surrounding communities 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
