Emergency Care

Emergency Care:
Vikram Hospital Emergency Care Center is open to patients of all ages--infants to seniors – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. From minor cuts and sprains to severe symptoms of stroke or heart attack, our hospital Emergency Department treat patients quickly and efficiently and is committed to provide you the best medical care.


When to use Emergency Care Department?
Nurses, physicians, and other emergency health specialists in our Emergency Departments provide care to people who are severely ill or have suffered life-threatening injuries.


When people with non-urgent medical concerns use the emergency, they put additional pressure on emergency staff, and on patients and family members who are waiting to receive urgent medical care. The health system itself is stretched trying to keep up with everyone’s demands in order of priority.


In Emergency, people in greatest need are seen first. If you come to the emergency department with a non-urgent medical concern, you may be requested to wait at times.  When your need is not urgent, we would like you to consider an alternative to the Emergency Department. When your need is urgent – we are there.


Kindly use our Emergency Departments for emergencies only. Please be responsible and help our staff better care for the people in our community who have a life-threatening illness or injury.


Please use the Emergency Departments only for an actual emergency.
