Trusted, Comprehensive Pre-hospital and ER Care
Saint Clare’s provides emergency services to thousands of patients
a year in the ER’s at our Denville and Dover Hospitals. With one
of the newest ambulance fleets in the region and some of the most qualified
personnel in their respective specialties, we provide emergency or general
medical transport to skilled nursing facilities, doctors’ appointments
and personal residences. Our Specialty Care Transport Units provide care
for critically-ill patients ranging from newborns to those of advanced
age with multiple medical problems. In an acute situation, care begins
in the ambulance while the emergency department prepares for arrival –
meaning your care starts even before you enter the hospital’s doors.
Dedicated Experts Ready to Handle Virtually Any Emergency
Each emergency department is staffed by board-certified emergency physicians,
supported by physician assistants and specially trained and certified
nurses, and is equipped with the latest in medical technology, including
CT scans, MRI scans and ultrasounds. We also have comprehensive programs
in place for stroke,emergency angioplasty, and therapeutic hypothermia
treatment. At the same time, we’ve reengineered our protocols, processes,
and staffing so that our expert care begins in minutes. Saint Clare's
utilizes a "green zone" system that moves patients, with minor
symptoms and injuries, through the emergency department quickly. Our processes
and systems result in faster turn-around times for lab work, diagnostic
tests and pharmaceutical needs – ultimately resulting in more efficient
Care That’s Not Just Faster, But Better

faster…we made them better. A visit to the ER should not mean overcrowding,
long wait times, and lack of information. We are striving to provide better
emergency care services that are smarter and faster – and to keep
you informed of what to expect.
