MultiCare Covington Emergency Department
24/7 emergency care in your neighborhood
The MultiCare Covington Medical Center has added 24/7 emergency care to the umbrella of primary and specialty care we currently offer the community.
Our 24,000-square-foot Emergency Department, which adjoins the Covington Medical Center offers the following features:
- Total of 19 treatment rooms, four of which are specialized for children, with a child-friendly separate waiting area.
- Advanced imaging services located in the Emergency Department, including digital X-ray, CT and ultrasound, allowing for faster diagnostic procedures.
- An ambulance bay large enough to handle four ambulances at a time, and a Rural Metro Ambulance onsite 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist with timely transfers for patients.
- Wi-Fi internet access and separate family waiting area with Kidzpace activity games.
- A warm and soothing ambience, with a modern, Northwest theme and plenty of natural light.
Because the Emergency Department is part of MultiCare Health System, it is also linked to MultiCare’s five South Sound hospitals and dozens of clinics by our system-wide electronic health records. That means wherever you’re treated in the MultiCare system, your caregivers will have instant access to your electronic health record, including your health history and such vital information as your allergies or any prescription medications you may be taking.
