Emergency Services at KHS
In December 2003, Kimball Health Services became the first Basic Level Trauma Center in Nebraska. This designation signifies the commitment to quality trauma care provided at the local level. We are proud of our trauma room renovated in 2000-2001 which is well equipped to deal with trauma, often from the nearby interstate.
EMS Services consist of a local, county owned basic level ambulance service (BLS), advanced level service (ALS) with Valley Ambulance of Scottsbluff, and AirLink, a helicopter service out of Regional West Medical Center, our regional trauma referral center.
Most trauma victims needing additional services are transferred to Regional West Medical Center in Scottsbluff (40 miles), and most cardiac patients needing additional services are transferred to United Medical Center in Cheyenne, Wyoming (55 miles).
Other transfer facilities are available in Greeley, Colorado-Burn center, and multiple facilities in Denver, Colorado (150 miles).
