Hypothermia

Because hypothermia can affect the brain and cause an irregular heartbeat leading to heart failure or death, it is important to seek medical attention immediately.

The Emergency Department at Jefferson offers world-class emergency services that are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our team consists of attending and resident physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, technicians and ancillary staff, all of whom are trained in emergency medicine and can offer excellent emergency care, whether for cuts and sprains or for more serious injuries or illnesses.
