Finding the ER
NMC Health’s Emergency Department is located at 600 Medical Center Drive, Newton, Kansas 67114.
You will access the hospital using the road: Medical Center Drive.
Signs will direct you to the emergency room. Look for the red sections on the sign and follow the arrows.
The ER is located on the east side of the main hospital complex.
If you are being dropped off at the ER, you can have the person driving you let you out under the covered porte-cochere.
Where to park?
There is dedicated parking for patients of, and those transporting patients to, the ER. Signs in front of the parking spots to the south and east of the ER entrance share where these dedicated spots are.
If you are family or friends who do not need emergency medical services, we ask you not park in these dedicated spaces. There is adequate parking outside the three story surgery center that is handicap accessible and very close to the ER entrance.
How to check into the ER?
Once you get to the ER and are parked, you can enter the ER through our covered entry. There are two sliding doors you will pass through.
Once inside, you will be greeted by our medical screener, who will take the a quick assessment of your injuries and get you in our que for treatment.
As you are being checked-in, you will be asked to provide information about yourself, your insurance, your injury and your family medical history.
It is important to remember that the services provided by the emergency room do not come by appointment, but by immediate need. You will be seen by a doctor in order of medical necessity. If there are people with more critical injuries than you, they will be seen first. If your injuries are more significant than others waiting for medical treatment, you will be prioritized higher to see a doctor.
What happens next?
A trip to the emergency room may be quick or time consuming. It all depends on how severely you are hurt, injured or sick. Our medical team will assess your needs and get you on the right path to getting better.
In the event you are admitted to the hospital (medical observation, surgical recovery, etc.), you may be asked to select a support person.
