Emergency Care Around the Clock

April 01, 2018

The Emergency Department at Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital, now verified as a Level III Trauma Center, makes taking care of you and your family a top priority. We strive to make each visit as quick and comfortable as possible. 

Know when to go

For serious or life-threatening issues such as the following, call 911 or go to the Emergency Department: 

  • Chest pain or difficulty breathing
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Blurred vision
  • Numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg
  • Severe bleeding 
  • A broken bone that punctures the skin 

“We have protocols in place for providing immediate, lifesaving care,” says Pino Colone, M.D., chief of emergency medicine at Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital. “For heart attack and stroke patients, we can activate our teams while patients are in an ambulance and treat them within minutes of their arrival.”
