* Emergency Department: You may encounter construction on Highway 50 near Barton Memorial Hospital. During construction periods, access to 3rd and 4th street toward the hospital from Highway 50 westbound (left turn) will not be permitted. Per Caltrans two alternate routes to Barton Memorial Hospital are recommended:

  • Vehicles heading westbound on Highway 50 can make a left turn at Winnemucca Avenue. Vehicles can then make a right turn on Barton Avenue to 3rd Street or 4th Street. Taking a left on 3rd Street or 4th Street will lead you to Barton Memorial Hospital.
  • Vehicles can continue on Highway 50 westbound to Highway 89 South and make a left on B Street. Staying left on B Street will turn into South Avenue leading to Barton Memorial Hospital.

** Urgent Care: Knowing where to go in a health emergency will help you get the best treatment possible. Urgent Care offers some of the same services as the Emergency Room, such as X-rays and blood testing. However, Urgent Care does not treat life-threatening conditions. If you need treatment right away for a less serious issue, an urgent care center may be your best bet.

Some less severe problems appropriate for Urgent Care services, include:
  • Sinus or ear infections
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Minor cuts and burns
  • Sprains and broken bones
  • Fever and sore throat
