Stories from the heart

It's an emergency room. Not a waiting room.
If you’ve been in the ER at Community Howard recently, you’ve likely noticed some things have changed. With our new process, we evaluate every patient’s illness or injury quicker, to deliver quality care faster than the national gold standard. While we recognize every visit may be serious, those with severe conditions such as heart attacks and strokes are immediately admitted to a room and seen by a board-certified emergency physician.
You’ll be glad to know patients with serious, but non-life-threatening, symptoms also receive the fastest care Kokomo has to offer. And when you’re in our ER you’re connected to our full service hospital. That means you can recover right here close to home. Shorter wait. Local care. Learn more >>
