Our Specialized Emergency Care Designations

Orange County Paramedic Base

The Emergency Department is a level two, basic services, paramedic-receiving center and is one of seven Paramedic Bases in Orange County, with thirteen Paramedic Units assigned to it. Paramedic base hospitals play an extremely important role in the assessment and treatment of patients before they arrive in the emergency department. The physicians and nurses are communicating with paramedics via radio before the patient even arrives.

Paramedic Resource for the Anaheim Fire Department Paramedics

AHMC Anaheim Regional Medical Center has also been designated as a Paramedic Resource for the Anaheim Fire Department Paramedics and the Paramedic Coordinator is responsible for quality maintenance, continuing education, regional paramedic advisory council and case reviews.

STEMI (Heart Attack) Receiving Center

AHMC Anaheim Regional Medical Center's Emergency Department is a designated cardiac receiving center for STEMI patients. An ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) is a form of heart attack, and it is important that those who experience a STEMI be treated within 90 minutes of the first onset of symptoms. Orange County residents with chest pain who call 9-1-1 will automatically be directed to a STEMI center, where cardiac expertise and facilities are ready 24-hours-a-day, seven days-a-week. The STEMI receiving team works in conjunction with the cardiovascular department to provide the best cardiac care available.

The Safe Place

Next to the Emergency Department is The Safe Place, a sexual assault examination unit. In order to visit the Safe Place, individuals must be assessed by the medical staff in the Emergency Department to ensure that any and all emergencies are taken care of. After this, any patient who believes that he or she has been sexually assaulted can meet with law enforcement officials at The Safe Place to submit forensic evidence of such a case.

AHMC Anaheim Regional Medical Center has the only Safe Place in Orange County. Every other Emergency Department and medical center in Orange County refers their patients to our Safe Place, once they have been medically evaluated.
