The Emergency Service Area at HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital is staffed 24 hours a day with board-certified emergency room physicians and specially trained nurses experienced in caring for patients with a variety of medical, surgical, and trauma-related emergencies.

In July of 2009 we welcomed Infinity HealthCare, one of the largest emergency medicine physician groups in the Midwest, to our organization. With a 33-year history of clinical excellence, Infinity HealthCare recruits only board-certified and residency-trained emergency medicine physicians, leading to the highest quality care for patients.
Additionally, our nursing staff is credentialed with Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Comprehensive Advanced Life Support (CALS) or Trauma Nurse Core Course (TNCC), and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS). They are supported by a full complement of ancillary services, including radiology, imaging and lab services, biohazard and disaster preparedness, and Advanced Life Support ground and air medical service transport.
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services has designated HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital as a level III Trauma Care Facility, making us the only state-designated level III trauma center in Chippewa County.
