Our Emergency Department: A Vital Community Resource

Our Emergency Department (ED) offers a comprehensive range of services, including many that are simply unavailable anywhere else in the county. Local residents look to us for all kinds of emergency care, from minor injuries and illnesses to lifesaving intervention for major injuries, heart attack, and stroke.

Marin General Hospital is a Level III Trauma Center, with added neurological capabilities that allow us to perform emergency surgery for traumatic injuries of the spine and brain. We treat patients 24-hours a day, seven days a week. A complete team of board certified emergency physicians and other specialists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, emergency technicians, and other specially trained staff is available at all times. We offer several exclusive services to Marin County:

  • ONLY Designated Trauma Center
    Our experienced, multidisciplinary team specializes in providing state-of-the-art trauma care to Marin County residents.
  • ONLY Certified Primary Stroke Center that can treat ALL types of stroke on site
    If stroke strikes, every second counts. We are the only hospital in Marin that can treat all types of stroke—ischemic as well as both types of hemorrhagic stroke (intracerebral and subarachnoid). 
  • ONLY Spine & Brain Institute
    We offer comprehensive neurological care and orthopedic spine surgery, including elective procedures and surgery to treat traumatic injury. While we are already a designated Level III Trauma Center, the fact that we offer emergency neurosurgery, 24/7, means our capabilities actually exceed this level.

That’s why we have introduced an “ouchless” approach in our Emergency Department. As an “Ouchless” ED, Marin General Hospital’s Emergency Team incorporates child-friendly protocols that help take the anxiety and pain out of visits.
