Progressive Care Unit
The medical professionals at Hill Regional Hospital provide 24-hour monitoring and acute care for critically ill patients in our Progressive Care Unit (PCU). Patients have access to specialists in a range of disciplines who use advanced equipment and technology to provide quality care. In the PCU, our staff and technology track vital information such as heart rate, central venous and respiratory pressure temperatures and cardiac output, for patients in critical condition who require close monitoring.
We understand that having a family member or loved one in the PCU can be difficult- that’s why our Progressive Care Team members are dedicated to keeping you informed and answering your questions.
Hill Regional Hospital offers a range of imaging services to provide patients with diagnostic and therapeutic services. Our imaging and radiology services teams work with doctors, nurses and other clinicians to deliver care. Our digital imaging technology allows doctors to access test results immediately, so treatment can begin more quickly.
We offer a variety of imaging services delivered by knowledgeable technologists. We offer:
You will receive two separate bills for your radiology procedure.
Part A is the hospital bill, billed under Hill Regional Hospital.
Part B is the radiologist bill from Hill County X-Ray Physicians, for the reading and supervision of your X-ray.
Emergencies can happen at any time. That’s why it’s important to be prepared and know where to go when you need medical care- fast. The emergency medicine team at Hill Regional Hospital provides care to patients in Hill County and surrounding areas when they need it most.
Our highly trained staff can provide care for everything from cuts and broken bones to life-threatening conditions such as heart attack or stroke. We provide efficient, prompt and compassionate care.
If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 9-1-1.
ER Service Pledge
To demonstrate our commitment to your care, the emergency department at Hill Regional Hospital participates in the 30 Minutes or Less ER Service Pledge.
What exactly is the 30-Minutes-or-Less ER Service Pledge?
When patients enter the emergency department, the time of their arrival will be noted. Our pledge is that a medical professional (physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner) will work diligently to have our patients initially seen within 30 minutes of their noted arrival.
Does this mean patients will be on their way home in 30 minutes or less?
No. We will work hard to have a medical professional initially see our patients and begin their evaluation and treatment within 30 minutes of their noted arrival. Depending on the nature of their illness or injury, and the unpredictable volume of patients requiring emergency care at any given time, the wait time and duration of each visit will vary.
How is the timeframe of patients' visits documented for this pledge?
When a patient arrives and checks in, the time of arrival will be noted. When the medical professional initially sees the patient, the time will be documented by the emergency department staff.
Is a 30-Minutes-or-Less ER Service Pledge really necessary for an emergency room?
In many emergency rooms across the country, wait times have been increasing. We want to assure our patients that we are dedicated to not only offering quality care but also to working diligently to provide that care as efficiently as possible.
When do the 30 minutes officially start?
The 30 minutes start when the patient checks in with our staff at the emergency room desk.
Does the 30-Minutes-or-Less ER Service Pledge affect how patients are prioritized?
While the goal is to initially see every patient within 30 minutes of their noted arrival, the most severe cases will always receive immediate attention.
How can the emergency department maintain quality care if speed is the priority?
It is not our objective now, nor will it ever be, to "rush" patients through the emergency department. Our process improvements have been focused on getting patients into a room as quickly as possible and enabling the medical professional to initially see a patient and begin their diagnosis and treatment in a timely manner.
Is the 30-Minutes-or-Less ER Service Pledge in effect at all times and does it apply to all ages - infants to senior citizens?
Do I have to wait up to 30 minutes for someone to say, "May I help you?"
Absolutely not. Emergency department staff will greet you as soon as you come in, and a nurse will assess your condition through a triage process. We know your time is valuable and we pledge to work diligently to have a medical professional initially see you within 30 minutes of your noted arrival.
The Emergency department (ED) average wait time is provided as an informational service to the public. It is approximate, and based on a rolling average that is updated four times an hour and does not represent the actual current activity in the ER waiting room.
The ED wait time represents the time it takes from arrival until a patient is initially seen by a Clinical Professional (Physician, Physician Assistant or Advanced Practice Nurse). Patients are triaged upon their arrival in the ED. They are then seen by a Clinical Professional in an order based on their complaint, condition, and the reason for their visit.
While many patients are initially seen by a medical professional within 30 minutes of their arrival, during some peak times when the number of patients and/or trauma situations exceeds the number of providers or beds, some patients are not initially seen within 30 minutes of their noted arrival.
Should you have any additional questions about the 30-Minutes-or-Less ER Service Pledge, please ask any of our emergency department staff.
