The HRH ED has three rooms, one of which is a Trauma Room. All rooms are equipped with monitoring services. In addition, laboratory, Radiology, and other invasive and non-invasive services are immediately available.
All physicians and physician assistants on staff at HRH ED have extensive experience in emergency medicine. Additionally, the ED is staffed with registered nurses certified in pediatric advanced life support and adult advanced life support.

Inpatient Behavioral Health
Haskell Regional Hospital Laboratory offers a variety of laboratory services. These services include Hematology, Urinalysis, Chemistries, Coagulation and rapid testing. In addition, the HRH Lab is CLIA certified and offers outpatient, inpatient, and emergency room services.
The Dietary Department has dietitian-approved menus to satisfy and meet the standards of a variety of diets. Most items are made fresh daily by the dietary staff, who take pride in achieving each patient’s exact dietary needs.
Physical Therapy is a non-invasive discipline that helps individuals of all ages develop, maintain and restore maximum body movement and physical function. PT provides various benefits, including reduced pain, improved function/strength, increased stability with an improved balance to reduce falls, increased range of motion, proper alignment and more. Of course, the primary goal of PT is to restore function and return to normal daily activity. Still, these things are often a by-product of the more extensive rehabilitation process, during which time, many patients learn a whole new way of moving with stability or reduced pain.
Speech Therapy techniques are used to improve communication problems and speech disorders. The techniques used by a speech therapist vary from articulation therapy, language intervention activities and others depending on the type of speech or language disorder. Speech therapy may be needed for speech disorders that develop in childhood or speech impairments in adults resulting from an injury or illness, such as a stroke or brain injury.
Haskell Regional Hospital offers an array of diagnostic imaging services for adults and children. Whether you need general x-rays, or a more specialized service, such as CT, bone density, ultrasound or MRI, you are in great hands in our Radiology Department. At HRH, we treat you like family because we are family. We are local residents striving to provide the best service to help our community, neighbors, family and friends. We are proud to serve Haskell County.
X-rays are the oldest, most common, and widely available diagnostic imaging tool. X-rays are often the first tool a physician uses before any advanced imaging is performed. Additional imaging like a cat scan, bone density, ultrasound and MRI are examples of those advanced imaging procedures. Diagnostic x-rays involve exposing a part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the body. Computed Tomography, more commonly known as a cat scan (or CT), is a series of x-ray images taken from different angles around the body. It uses computer software and processing to create cross-sectional images or slices of the bones, vessels, and soft tissue inside the body. Dexascan is an imaging tool used to determine if you have osteoporosis. Ultrasound is a modality that uses sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. MRI is a non-invasive test that uses a powerful magnetic field, a radio and a processing console to create detailed images of the body.
End of Life Care / Comfort Care
End of life care is a term we use in our Swing bed (skilled nursing) hospital setting. The end of life care may look different depending on the patients wishes. Some people want to be home when they pass away, while others may prefer to be in a hospital. Some patients often live with one or more chronic illness and may need significant care for days, weeks, or even months before death. Here at HRH, patients can be surrounded by family and friends while our qualified staff providers physical comfort, mental and emotional needs. Let us help you help your patients and their loved ones through this transition.
