Emergency and Urgent Care
What to Expect In the Arnhold Emergency Department
Our goal is to evaluate you and manage your illness or injury as quickly and efficiently as possible. Public access is now through the new Elm Street entrance, allowing ambulance-only access through the historic entrance at the back of the building.
What You Need to Know About EMS
The fastest, most effective way to get emergency medical treatment is always to dial 9-1-1. In collaboration with area EMS services, New Milford Hospital’s board-certified emergency physicians direct and advise EMS teams so they can begin delivering life-saving, pre-hospital care the moment they arrive.
Trauma Stroke and Heart Attack Care
As a member of the Western Connecticut Health Network, New Milford Hospital works in partnership with Danbury Hospital to provide care and treatment of serious medical emergencies.
After being stabilized at New Milford Hospital, patients with trauma, or suspected stroke or heart attack are immediately transported to Danbury Hospital in a well-equipped ambulance, staffed with trained paramedics.
A Level II Trauma Center with an award-winning critical care unit, a Stroke Center and a Chest Pain Center, Danbury Hospital delivers life-saving care for people with trauma or suspected stroke or heart attack. Together we care for more than 90,000 people experiencing medical emergencies each year.
