Bon Secours – Southside Medical Center's emergency department boasts two trauma rooms and two cardiac care rooms for patients requiring a higher level of care. The ER offers a radiology suite for routine imaging, three strategically located nursing stations, private and spacious treatment rooms and a wireless nurse-call system that provides more efficient nursing care. Using an advanced computer system at bedside, the physician and nurse can quickly track treatment, thus providing timely, effective care. We have been named a Primary Stroke Center by The Joint Commission as well as an accredited Chest Pain Center with Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) by the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care.

A helipad for medical flights is located near the trauma unit and a decontamination treatment area for patients exposed to hazardous material offers a comfortable, private care environment.
In order to ensure the health and safety of our patients, visitors, associates and medical providers, we have a temporary policy in place reducing the entrance points to all seven of our hospitals in the Richmond market.
