In the emergency room at Paris Regional Medical Center, patients are treated based on the severity of their condition. Those who may arrive first may not necessarily be treated first. In the event of a life-threatening condition, call 9-1-1 immediately.

Calling helps our ER team prepare for your arrival and start life-saving treatment more quickly.
