Regional Emergency and Level II Trauma Center
The Williams-Ario Regional Emergency and Trauma Center at Benefis East Campus is a Level II Trauma Center, and is one of the largest and busiest Emergency Departments (ED) in Montana. With 19 general-care exams rooms, six non-urgent care rooms, three critical-care trauma rooms and 12,000 square feet of space, the ED is fully equipped to treat its more than 39,000 patients per year.
All patients are triaged or processed for emergent or non-emergent care areas depending on the level of care they need. The ED is staffed with board-certified or board-eligible physicians, with double coverage 16 hours per day. The "ER Minor" is staffed by family nurse practitioners that treat patients with non-urgent medical needs.
The ED is adjacent to operating rooms, radiology and laboratory services, and has direct and private routes to critical care areas that are not publicly accessible.
As a Level II Trauma Center, Benefis Hospitals Emergency Department treats critical trauma victims injured in our community and across central Montana.
