About ER

Emergency Department

In an emergency, people need to think fast. That's why they think of YRMC's 37-bed Emergency Department. Our highly qualified staff treats 72,000 patients annually and serves as a base hospital for the Emergency Medical System. To treat patients more effectively, we operate a 7-bed ED section for non-acute care. Our emergency department has a fully computerized tracking system: order entry, medical records and imaging.

The following specialties are available at
Yuma Regional Medical Center:

Hospitalists - full time in-house
Intensivist/Pulmonology - full time in-house

Medical/Surgical Services

Our multidisciplinary team is committed to quality care at every level. As a regional referral center, the health care professionals in our medical services areas provide care to a diverse range of patients. These areas include a 52-bed Surgical Unit tailored to the care of trauma and postsurgical/orthopedic patients and a 46-bed Medical Unit focused on oncology and dialysis.

Critical Care

Critical Care services include 24/7 Interventional Cardiology, the Intensive Care Unit/Step Down Unit, the Postoperative Acute Care Unit and Palliative Care. The ICU/SDU is a 42-bed state-of-the-art multispecialty unit which is patient/family centered, with 10 beds reserved for cardiovascular patients. Critical Care utilizes the latest in technology and methodology, such as intra-aortic balloon counter pulsation, hemodynamic monitoring and continuous renal replacement therapy.

Our Palliative Care program organizes and offers a multidisciplinary consultation service for patients who are in need of symptom management and end of life care.

Surgical/Outpatient Services

Our Surgery Department sets the standards for excellence. Performing more than 10,000 operations per year, our fine surgeons and staff use the latest medical technology and equipment available - such as advanced laparoscopic and cystoscopy video systems, and CO2, NdYAG, Argon and Candela Laser technologies.

Equally as important as Surgical Services, our Outpatient Services team is diverse and proficiently cross-trained to properly assist patients with preadmittance, pre-op, recovery and discharge for a multitude of outpatient hospital department procedures.
