Do ambulances come to the Belmar ER?
The Belmar ER is equipped to receive ambulances. Just like the Swedish main ER and the Swedish Southwest ER, we seek to provide a seamless transition of care for patients arriving by ambulance. We also recognize our proximity to residential communities, and ask our EMS partners to minimize disturbances caused by lights and sirens when possible.
What happens if I need to be admitted to the hospital?
The Belmar ER is fully integrated as a department of Swedish. If your treating physician determines that you require admission to Swedish, we arrange ambulance transport directly to an inpatient room. There is no fee for ambulance transport if you are being admitted to Swedish—just as if you were admitted from the Swedish main ER. As we like to say, “It’s just a long hallway you have to take an ambulance to get down.”
If your child needs to be admitted into the hospital, we are able to admit patients directly to Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children. Due to our partnership, even if your child needs to go downtown, the ambulance transport cost is covered as well.
However, if you choose to be admitted to another hospital other than Swedish or Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children and require ambulance transport, your insurance company will be billed.
We provide radiology services to emergency patients and outpatients on a walk-in basis. Conveniently located inside the ER, our radiology department offers standard X-ray and CT services with 24-hour availability. With an American College of Radiology accredited CT scanner, we are able to treat our patients using the lowest radiation dose.
