PCMH Emergency Department Construction Underway
Temporary PCMH ER

Beginning March 15, 2018, the Perry County Memorial Hospital (PCMH) Emergency Department (ED) will treat patients in the temporary building immediately adjacent to the previous Emergency Department.  All patients seeking emergency care should enter through the clearly marked patient entrance on the right side of the temporary building.  The temporary location has a walk-in patient entrance and an ADA accessible ramp entrance. 

Additionally, patients visiting PCMH for outpatient services during the hours of 6am – 8pm will continue to enter through the main lobby doors and register at the daytime Admitting offices.   All outpatient services conducted between 8pm – 6am will enter through the temporary ED facility to complete their registration.

Construction on the current ED will begin immediately following this transition and is estimated to be completed in six months.  The renovation of the ED will include significant improvements aiding in PCMH providing top notch care.  PCMH appreciates the community’s cooperation and support during this transition.  For continued updates on the PCMH Emergency Department renovation, visit and/or follow PCMH on Facebook and Instagram.
