The Gundersen Palmer Emergency Department is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by specially trained medical providers and nurses prepared to handle a wide variety of emergencies for all ages.

We have a Level IV trauma designation with Laboratory and Radiology services readily available to assist in evaluation and diagnosis. In the event it is determined that a patient needs more specialized care than can be provided at Gundersen Palmer Lutheran Hospital and Clinics, the patient is stabilized and transported by either ambulance or helicopter to a specialty care facility chosen by the patient. During transport, personnel trained in emergency transfer provide continued care. Copies of the studies and vital information concerning the emergency visit are sent and communicated to the receiving hospital so advanced planning can be started before the patient's arrival.

Urgent Care

The Gundersen Palmer Urgent Care Clinic is available to treat minor medical problems and injuries and for people who are unable to be seen by their healthcare provider during traditional clinic hours. The clinic is staffed by a local healthcare provider or a contracted agency provider. 

Hours

Monday & Wednesday, 5:30-8:30 p.m.; Saturday & Sunday 1-5 p.m.
