Image of William E. Ruse CenterBlanchard Valley Hospital and Bluffton Hospital play essential roles in caring for the needs of the community. Our Emergency services are provided by a team of board certified emergency medicine physicians who work in cooperation with other in-house specialists to provide efficient, quality treatment.

For health issues that occur outside normal physician office hours, but are not a true medical emergency, we also offer urgent care facilities for adults and children.

When to visit the Emergency Department

There are times when the need for emergency care is not clear. When in doubt, do not hesitate to seek medical attention, as it is always better to receive an examination than to ignore a potential problem.

If you or a loved one experiences any of the symptoms below, seek emergency care immediately:

  • Chest pain, upper abdominal pain or pressure
  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Fainting or feeling faint
  • Dizziness, sudden weakness or sudden change in vision
  • Severe pain anywhere in the body
  • Severe or persistent vomiting
  • Suicidal or homicidal feelings
  • Uncontrollable bleeding

Should you experience an emergency like the ones listed above, call 911 immediately. Do not attempt to drive to the hospital! The highly knowledgeable EMS team can begin administering much-needed care and direct you to a health care facility as quickly as possible.
