Why Methodist?

Our board-certified physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses and paramedics are specially trained in emergency medicine. We also recognize that no two patients – or emergencies – are alike. Methodist is a leader in heart attack and stroke care; the Methodist Hospital Emergency Department is accredited for the care of senior patients; Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital and Methodist Fremont Health have teams specially trained to care for patients with behavioral health challenges; and each of our hospitals offers compassionate care and support to victims of sexual assault, human trafficking or domestic violence. Our staff members are dedicated to providing personalized care and determining the best treatment plan – whether it includes discharge from the emergency department, admission to the hospital or transfer to another facility.

  • Chest pain
