Emergency Department

The Emergency Department at Coon Memorial Hospital (DHCHD) was completed in 2015 to enlarge the department to better serve our community. It contains 3 Trauma Rooms,an OB/Gyn room, a pediatric room, and isolation room. Within the new Emergency Department we included a shower and eye wash station to be able to handle chemical burns.

We are designated as a Level 4 Trauma ED with the state of Texas, and typically see about 420 patients a month.

In order to treat traumas and major illnesses quickly, the ED is located near to lab and X-ray departments and is staffed 24/7/365 with Medical Practitioners and certified nurses.

Dr. Shad Newson, Emergency Department Clinician Supervisor, not only works regular shifts in the ED; but also supervises non-physician providers in the department. Currently our regular providers within the ED are:
Shad Newson, MD
Ronnie Mylott, FNP
Keith Powell, PA-C
David Ward, PA-C
Jason Wright, PA-C


Our staff is well educated with:


Advanced Cardiac Life Support
Pediatric Advanced Life Support

All of our staff is ready to help you in your emergent time when you come to us for care at the Emergency Department at Coon Memorial Hospital.

Our Emergency Department is a Safe Baby Drop Point. No questions asked.
