Here for you 24/7.
Our Emergency Services team is specially trained to treat all your emergent and critical needs conveniently in our Emergency Room 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We provide you with little-to-no wait time, while caring for you with the highest level of emergency care, day or night.
At our facility, you'll be seen by a physician, not a midlevel, and be given a thorough evaluation to establish the best plan for your care.
We are part of the Advanced UNMC Telestroke program®, and a Certified Primary Stroke Center, which means we can quickly and accurately treat strokes where time is of the essence.
We work with many Emergency Medical Service providers and hospitals throughout Nebraska and Northern Kansas. If you are in need of emergency transport, your EMS crew may ask where you’d like to go. Just say, “Take me to Kearney Regional” and you’ll experience the highest emergency care within minutes!
