Emergency Department

Michigan Medicine is recognized nationally for our clinical care as well as for clinical research in emergency medicine.

As a Level One trauma center, we are ranked as having the highest level of care available for emergency health care. Our facilities are equipped to handle all urgent and emergency problems including brain injury, stroke, heart attack/chest pains, burns and poisoning. Our Survival Flight service operates rotor-wing and fixed-wing transport for responding to critical emergencies.

The University Hospital, including our novel Emergency Critical Care Center, provides training opportunities with a range of high-complexity cases and high-acuity populations. Through long-term collaborations with community partners, our trainees are also exposed to the full spectrum of modern emergency medicine, from the community-focused experiences at St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor and to the urban safety-net environment at Hurley Medical Center in Flint, Michigan.
