The two Emergency Departments average approximately 62,000 patients annually with a high level of acuity and complexity. It is staffed by approximately 34 full time physicians and advanced practitioners with full support from nursing, support staff and scribes. In January 2017 a new state of the art Emergency Medicine Center opened. Here are just a few of the new features that will support exceptional care in the ED: 

  • A 45,000-square-foot facility with 36 private rooms, four trauma bays, and a fast-track

  • An Emergency Radiology program with Radiologists dedicated to the ER patient imaging with  two imbedded CT scanners and x-ray, 

  • A behavioral health unit where social workers and psychiatric staff can see patients in a private and safe manner;

  • Close proximity to the surgical ICU and the operating room 

  • A dedicated decontamination unit for patients with chemical and radiation exposure; 

  • An ER pharmacy where patients can fill their prescriptions before they leave;
