No one plans to visit the ER. It just happens, usually when you least expect it.

The emergency department at Russell County Hospital in Lebanon, Virginia, is open 24 hours a day, year-round.

The ER is staffed by specially trained physicians and other healthcare experts to diagnose and treat emergency illnesses and injuries.

The hospital also features a heliport to accommodate patients who arrive by helicopter or who must be transported outside the area for certain types of specialized care.
