Emergency Medicine

When you are faced with a medical emergency, Indiana University Health is here to provide experienced and effective treatment, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Indiana University Health Saxony Hospital has a full-service Emergency department, specializing in the treatment of adults and children. Our team is comprised of physicians experienced in emergency medicine and highly trained emergency medicine nurses, paramedics and emergency medical technicians (EMTs). We also offer social work and chaplaincy services to help patients and families cope with emergencies.

With the latest technology and an advanced team of caregivers, IU Health Saxony Hospital provides treatment for patients who arrive with a variety of common illnesses to complex medical conditions ranging from a possible heart attack or stroke, difficulty breathing, abdominal pain, sudden illness, cuts, bleeding, broken bones and more.

Through our partnership with the Indiana University School of Medicine, we are improving outcomes for our most critically ill and injured patients through research and clinical trials.

Our convenient facilities include:

  • Eight specialty rooms, four chest-pain rooms and one trauma room
  • A full-service laboratory, radiology and imaging, and respiratory care support
  • A full-service catheterization (cath) lab, including three dual-purpose cath labs. Catheterization involves insertion of a catheter, or thin tube, into the body to perform a surgical procedure or treat a disease.

The IU Health Saxony Hospital Emergency Medicine staff treats pediatric patients; however, if children are required to be admitted to a hospital, they will need to be referred to IU Health North Hospital

Indiana University Health LifeLine

Assuring your safe transportation to and from IU Health Saxony Hospital or other IU Health hospitals is important to us. That is why we have a helipad for Indiana University Health LifeLine, which provides critical care transport by ground (ambulance) and air (helicopter) medical capabilities. Additional ground critical care transport is offered though the town of Fishers Emergency Medical Services and Seals Ambulance Service. Both organizations use an ambulance bay and staff sleeping quarters at IU Health Saxony Hospital to allow faster emergency response service and better access to emergency care.
