Hospital Services

At Eastern Plumas Health Care, we offer an impressive array of hospital based services. Our small, acute care hospital supports a 24 hour, physician staffed, emergency room and ambulance service. Ambulance crews consist of an Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) trained paramedic and an EMT, allowing them to apply the clinical interventions and urgent treatment necessary when a patient is experiencing cardiac arrest or another life threatening medical emergency.

In addition, we provide a wide spectrum of outpatient diagnostic services. These include a full service clinical laboratory and a comprehensive radiology department, offering preventative and diagnostic imaging services. We offer both inpatient and outpatient surgeries and procedures.
