Maniilaq Health Center provides all levels of emergency care in our 5-bed unit, twenty-four hours a day seven days a week. The emergency department is designed to provide rapid and varied emergency care, especially for those with sudden and acute illness or who are victims of trauma. A triage system is used to screen patients and to determine priority of needs. Illness and injuries that are severe are stabilized for transportation in conjunction with Guardian Flight to a higher level of care.  Our nurses are trained to care for patients from birth and throughout the lifespan. All staff in our emergency department maintains Basic Life Support, Advanced Life Support and Pediatric Life Support training for the safety of our community.
