HONOLULU (HI Now) - Adventist Health Castle takes care of their patients like family, providing quality service with staff on call 24/7!
Every physician at Adventist Health Castle is a board certified physician in emergency medicine. This means that they are specialized and accredited to see every patient population from children to elderly. The patients care does not end in the emergency room, as Adventist has many different departments to transfer incoming patients to including OB/GYN, cardiology, gastroenterology, and multiple surgical specialists from orthopedics to neurosurgery.
They are also the only STEMI receiving center and certified stroke center on the windward side., making them an essential part of the community. A STEMI is a very serious heart attack, and Adventist has a dedicated cardiology staff and catheterization laboratory ready to provide care for any patient experiencing a STEMI. They also have the tools needed to quickly assess any stroke, and the ability to collaborate with the neurology department to provide a medicine that has the potential to reverse a stroke.
Adventist Health Castle is currently in the accreditation process to become a level 3 trauma center! A first for the windward side of Oahu, Adventist will have the capability to fully care for patients with subspecialists in surgery, occupational and physical therapy, and social work. “We can keep our community here, and care for them,” says Dr. Alexander Berk, MD.
