Lake Butler Hospital provides 24/7 emergency care.
We can handle minor and major emergencies, including everything from fractures and colds to heart attacks and strokes. If your condition requires a higher-level of care, LBH will stabilize and arrange transfer to a larger facility by EMS or life flight depending on the severity of the emergency.
Why go elsewhere and wait? Our average check-in to discharge time is 103 minutes, which is low compared to the Florida state average of 145 minutes.*
