Age-friendly emergency department
The Department of Emergency Medicine at UC Davis Health treats critically ill or injured adults and children 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The team consists of physicians, nurses, residents, and 26 specialists from every medical and surgical specialty. The Emergency Department is located in the Surgery and Emergency Services Pavilion at UC Davis Medical Center.
In 2022, the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) awarded Geriatric Emergency Department Accreditation — Gold Level 1, the highest level of accreditation — to the geriatric emergency department (ED). UC Davis Health is the only ED in Sacramento to earn this accreditation and joins only 21 other EDs in the nation that have achieved gold status.
