Philadelphia Hospital Equipped & Ready
With the injured patient as its focus, the center applies the latest techniques and know-how to minimizing the impact of trauma and promoting recovery.
Staffed by career emergency medicine physicians and nurses, the Emergency Departments at Aria Health's Bucks County, Frankford and Torresdale locations are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and are equipped to treat all illnesses and injuries, both minor and serious and/or life-threatening.
When a patient is treated, his or her personal physician will be notified by phone if the patient requires admission or has a serious problem mandating care by a specialist. For minor ambulatory care, the physician will receive a copy of the Emergency Department record, as well as a copy of the patient's discharge instructions.
Accordingly, Philadelphia hospital Aria Health - Torresdale is an officially designated Level 2 Regional Resource Trauma Center. Patients with the most serious injuries are brought to Torresdale by local emergency medical squads.
