Critical care before you arrive.
We work closely with our Emergency Medical Services (EMS) partners to provide critical care before you even arrive at Chippenham Hospital, so we can best anticipate and prepare for your immediate needs.
Our EMS partners have knowledge and experience in trauma care, allowing them to make split-second life-saving decisions. Your survival often depends on the EMS provider’s ability to rapidly evaluate your injuries and determine the appropriate place for you to receive trauma care. In most cases, the EMS staff and our trauma team are communicating and preparing for your arrival.
If you or someone you know is experiencing an emergency always call 911 first.
If you aren’t certain about a critical care situation, you can contact a nurse, 24 hours a day, by phone at 804-320-3627.
