Emergency Services

If you have an injury or illness that needs immediate attention, you will receive the highest level of care possible from the Emergency Department at Ashe Memorial Hospital. Our health care providers will assess your emergency and determine the level of care you need. We have doctors trained in emergency medicine, as well as surgeons, radiologists and anesthesiologists ready to serve you at any hour.

If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, call 911 and an ambulance will bring you to Ashe Memorial Hospital. Click here for directions to the Ashe Memorial Hospital campus. Signs will direct you to the Emergency Department.

Among the medical emergencies we routinely handle are:

  • Strokes
  • Heart attacks
  • Chest pains
  • Trouble breathing
  • Broken bones
  • Acute injuries from falls or accidents

Wait Times

While our goal is to keep wait times to a minimum, please understand your wait will depend on the urgency of your emergency, the number of other patients waiting to be seen and the availability of our health care providers.

If you are experiencing a non-life-threatening emergency, the Mountain Family Care Center, our urgent care clinic, is located on the campus of Ashe Memorial Hospital.
