Your Road to Recovery Starts Here

In a medical emergency, high-quality healthcare can make all the difference. You’ll find that care at the Williams-Ario Regional Emergency and Trauma Center on the Benefis East Campus.

As a Level II Trauma Center, we provide the most advanced emergency care available in northcentral Montana. When a sudden illness, injury, or medical condition strikes, the team in our emergency department is here to help – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

What to Expect

A staff member will assess your condition in the emergency department. Because we treat those with the most serious problems first, you may not receive assistance in the order in which you arrive.

Board-certified providers see those needing the highest levels of care, while experienced nurse practitioners may assist those medical needs that are not urgent.

Health problems requiring immediate medical attention include:

  • Bleeding that won’t stop
  • Pain or pressure in the upper chest or abdomen that lasts at least two minutes
  • Trouble breathing

  • Vision changes
  • A fainting spell, weakness, or dizziness that comes on suddenly

  • Ongoing or severe vomiting or diarrhea

If you have these symptoms or others you think are a medical emergency, call 911 right away.
