Emergency & Trauma

In cases of emergency, we have you covered at four convenient locations. Our trauma and emergency teams are ready 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can always count on us for caring and expert treatment for any serious injury or illness.
Every year, we provide trauma and emergency services to more than 150,000 patients. In fact, more people choose Bronson for their emergency care than any other healthcare system in the region because of our unique combination of expert physicians, advanced technology and convenient locations.

Within the Bronson system, we treat all types of emergencies, ranging from serious, life-threatening injuries and illnesses to less severe conditions that require prompt medical attention.  The same experienced emergency physician group cares for patients at all four Bronson hospitals.  When you need more specialized care, rest assured knowing you have access to our Level 1 Trauma Center, accredited Chest Pain Emergency Center and Primary Stroke Center at Bronson Methodist Hospital.     

No matter where you live or what kind of emergency care you need, we’re always close by with convenient locations in Battle Creek, Kalamazoo, Paw Paw and Vicksburg.
