SMC on Diversion

Published on: July 5, 2017

July 5, 2017

PLEASE NOTE: Samaritan Medical Center is on ambulance diversion. This by no means indicates that we are closed – WE ARE ACCEPTING PATIENTS. Diversion is simply a request for ambulance services to consider transporting patients to another hospital, if the patient agrees, and if that is an option for the patient. Unstable (critical) patients who cannot safely make it to another facility will still come here, and we are still accepting walk-in patients, though they may experience an unusually long wait depending on the acuity of their condition. It is important to note that expectant mothers and patients seeking behavioral health are not affected.

July 7, 2017 UPDATE: SMC is no longer on ambulance diversion.
