The Osteopathic Emergency Medicine Residency Program at Saint Vincent Hospital provides the resident with the necessary experience, knowledge, guidance and skills to become a complete emergency physician in the osteopathic tradition. The emergency department at Saint Vincent has 22 beds, all with mobile monitoring capability, in–room radiography, and the department’s own ultrasound machine.
The Saint Vincent Emergency Department is the busiest in the area, serving approximately 69,000 patients per year. Saint Vincent serves as the region’s SANE program (Sexual Assault Nurse Extender), with a private crisis treatment room and trained forensic nurses on call 24 hours per day. We are also the region’s main psychiatric center and an official DMAT (Disaster Medical Assistance Team) for the Department of Homeland Security, to be deployed nationally in times of disaster.
