BMG Emergency Medicine

Emergencies happen unexpectedly. You can prepare yourself in advance for a potential emergency situation, but you never really know what to expect—until it happens. When a medical emergency does occur, Baptist Medical Group is there for you.

Emergency medicine plays a crucial role in the health care system, and BMG is dedicated to serving patients in need of sudden, emergency medical treatment.

What do BMG emergency medicine physicians do?

Responding to a medical emergency takes quick thinking, patience and fast action. Emergency medicine physicians often have very little time to plan prior to diagnosis and treatment, so they must be able to react quickly.

Special training prepares physicians who specialize in emergency medicine for their fast-paced environment. These doctors respond to emergency situations, such as sudden heart attacks or loss of consciousness, among individuals of all ages. They focus on rapidly diagnosing and treating injuries, trauma, sudden illnesses and life-threatening conditions that require immediate medical attention.
