In an emergency, turn to those you trust. Receive emergency medical services from Bellin Health providers who work together to deliver a full spectrum of care.
If you're having a medical emergency, it’s crucial to seek help from those you can rely on. The Bellin Health Emergency Department consists of board-certified and board-eligible emergency physicians who work with family practice, advanced practice clinicians and specialty providers to deliver exemplary acute care.
Our nurses are trained at the top level of their profession, with nearly 80 percent holding BSN degrees or higher. All registered nurses are certified in advanced pediatric and cardiac life support and can serve you and your loved ones 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
We understand the importance of immediate treatment. However, emergency department patients are triaged based on the severity of illness, not arrival time. While emergency providers are trained to care for various conditions, our primary focus is on emergency and urgent conditions. We collaborate with a diverse range of medical specialists to ensure that you receive the emergency care you need when you need it.
When it comes to emergencies, we know that trust is essential. You can depend on us to provide you with compassionate care. We serve 40,000-plus patients annually, providing the lowest cost and highest quality of services for area patients.

Our Green Bay Emergency Department has 22 patient rooms. It's located next to our X-ray and imaging services. Our advanced CT scanners provide advanced imaging for heart conditions.
Emergency services are also offered at our Bellin Health Oconto Hospital, which has six beds, one trauma room and specialist access.
Although we are a certified Primary Stroke Center, EMS personnel may divert severe stroke cases to a Comprehensive Stroke Center. Similarly, we are capable of treating a wide variety of acute traumatic injuries, including work-related and sports injuries. However, severe trauma patients (gunshot wounds and severe injury) are transported to one of two level II trauma centers in Green Bay.
Heart & Stroke
Bellin Health is the region’s premier heart center, and we take pride in our industry-leading 55-minute door-to-balloon time for heart attack patients. We have also been certified as a Primary Stroke Center. We are one of only three hospitals in Wisconsin — and 17 nationwide — to receive the Target Stroke Honor Roll Elite Plus Award from the American Heart Association.
Our KidCare department at Bellin Hospital in Green Bay offers emergency services for children and adolescents from pediatricians and pediatric nurses who provide expert care in a child-friendly environment. Bellin’s on-site KidCare providers meet the unique needs of each child, treating them with compassion and skill. We have six rooms dedicated to the care of children. Our facilities are sized right, with special equipment and furnishings for them.
We are Green Bay’s only hospital that partners with the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin through our Connected with Kids program.
- KidCare is open every day from 4 pm - 9:30 pm.

Our Emergency Department offers in-house obstetrics coverage and access to various specialists, including cardiac, cardiothoracic surgery, gastroenterology, general surgery, infectious disease, orthopedic surgery, psychiatry, urology and pediatric services.
Although we strive to keep all care local, in the rare event we cannot provide the appropriate care at our Green Bay facility, we have transfer agreements with the other local hospitals and tertiary care facilities, such as Froedtert and the University of Wisconsin in Madison.
Our triage nurses provide timely patient evaluations upon your arrival. Patients may return to the reception area following their initial assessment. Treatment intervals vary due to patient volume and the severity of the illness or injury.
Even when our lobby seems quiet, the Emergency Department may not be. We appreciate your patience as we provide timely emergency care that is thorough and complete. We work to provide you with the care you need as quickly as possible while also serving your fellow patients.
