Providing compassionate, state-of-the-art patient care
The Stanford University Department of Emergency Medicine and the Marc and Laura Andreessen Emergency Department at Stanford provide a dedicated team of physicians, nurses and other health professionals to provide an extraordinary level of knowledge, skill and compassion to every patient we serve at Stanford University Hospital. The Marc and Laura Andreessen Emergency Department is prepared and equipped to provide comprehensive emergency care to patients of all ages in consultation with Stanford University Medical Center medical and surgical specialties to treat acute illnesses and injuries. An Emergency Medicine faculty physician is present 24 hours a day.
The American College of Surgeons has re-verified us as a Level I Adult & Pediatric Trauma Center - the highest level possible. Stanford University Medical Center is the only Trauma Center in our county with this designation and verification; and serves as a regional trauma center for northern and central California, as well as adjacent states. Another component of the Department of Emergency Medicine is the Life Flight Medical Transport Program which is available to transport critically ill or injured patients. It provides high-quality medical care during patient transport. Emergency critical care transports by ground vehicles, fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Life Flight utilizes both nurse-led and physician-led transport teams depending on the acuity of the patient.
We are also dedicated to the education of medical students and residents within the art of Emergency Medicine through close collaboration with the Stanford University School of Medicine. Our faculty specializes in providing superb education in particular within the sub-specialties of International Medicine, Wilderness Medicine, Ultrasound, Medical Simulation, Cardiovascular, Emergency Medical Services, and Social and Population Health.
