Here at Warner Hospital and Health Services your emergency is our top priority!


Emergency care that’s here when you need it.

Warner Hospital and Health Services offers the only 24-hour Emergency Department in DeWitt County. You can have peace of mind knowing that emergency care is always available close to home.

Is the Emergency Department always staffed?

Absolutely. Emergency Services are staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, by board-certified emergency medicine physicians supported by registered nurses who are certified trauma nurse specialists. The staff maintains certification in Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support.

What if I need more advanced care?

Warner Hospital has been certified as an Acute Stroke Ready Hospital and is able to provide the immediate care that is important to give stroke patients their best chance of recovery. We also have transfer agreements with larger hospitals for those emergencies in which higher levels of care are required by specialists, not on site. Our well-trained staff will stabilize the patient for transfer via ambulance to assure the best outcomes for the patient.

What if I have questions?

When in doubt about the nature or severity of the medical emergency, call 911 first.

For non-emergent care, call Family Medicine at 217-937-5284
