Maury Regional Health also has a top-rated staff of paramedics and emergency medical technicians who respond to ambulance calls across Lewis, Maury and Wayne counties. Learn more in the Ambulance/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) section of our website.


Located at Maury Regional Medical Center, the Observation Unit serves patients age 16 and older who are sent by their physician for further evaluation or who have been evaluated in the Emergency Department (ED) but need further monitoring to determine if they should be discharged or admitted to the hospital.

The Observation Unit allows medical and nursing staff to focus on common conditions that require more hours of care than a typical emergency room visit. By utilizing the Observation Unit, ED beds are freed to allow quicker treatment of other emergency patients and more hospital beds remain available for patients requiring inpatient admission. Common diagnoses evaluated in the Observation Unit include:

  • chest pain
  • abdominal pain
  • COPD exacerbations
  • kidney stones
  • fluid resuscitation for dehydration
  • and most other conditions that are expected to require less than 24 hours for evaluation and treatment
