@aejmom: To answer your question, the emergency room at St. Joseph Mercy Saline is and will remain open to serve Saline and the surrounding communities.
These rumors may be stemming from St. Joseph Mercy Saline officially changing from an inpatient hospital to an outpatient health center as of July 1, 2012. Part of this change included the closure of surgical services at St. Joes Saline, which affects ambulance traffic. As of right now, regulatory laws prohibit ambulances from bringing patients to any emergency department that does not have an attached hospital or surgical facility. St. Joseph Mercy Saline physicians and leadership are encouraging the revision of legislation to make it possible for ambulances to bring patients to the St. Joseph Mercy Saline ER once again. But again, this is only for patients requiring ambulance assistance. Walk-in emergency services at St. Joseph Mercy Saline are open and available 24/7.
In addition to 24-hour emergency care, St. Joseph Mercy Saline provides physical and hand therapy, laboratory services and radiology services to all patients.
Thank you for your question.
