  • The original Emergency Department was designed to serve 25,000 patients a year, but we were seeing nearly double that number. This led us to develop a larger footprint of 48,000 square feet, doubling our previous capacity. All of the rooms are now private and spacious, each supplied with resuscitative equipment.
  • Our emergency department now includes 4 trauma rooms, including one for pediatric patients. All rooms are large enough to accommodate emergency and trauma teams. There are now 4 critical cardiac treatment rooms for emergencies such as heart attacks and strokes.
  • We’ve incorporated separate treatment areas to facilitate a more efficient treatment process. The goal is for the patient, no matter his or her need, to be cared for as quickly and safely as possible. Patients are triaged by a team which includes a medical provider and a nurse which enables the patient to be treated promptly & accurately according to their severity of illness. The zones are organized and color-coded as follows:
      • Low acuity patients and walk-ins: Green
      • Moderate acuity patients: Yellow
      • Critical, trauma and cardiac patients: Red
      • Pediatric patients: Purple (Pediatric ED hours are 12pm-10pm)
      • Mental health patients: Blue
  • Walk-in patients are seen by an experienced greeter nurse who determines to which zone they will go. Patients arriving by ambulance will enter via a separate entrance.
  • We have dedicated radiology services in the emergency department which includes X-Ray, a state-of-the-art CT-scanner and ultrasound machines. X-Ray and ultrasound can be performed in the patient's room when necessary.
  • We are the first facility in the region with a dedicated pediatric emergency department, led by a board certified Pediatric Emergency Medicine Director. A separate pediatric area, staffed by a specially trained team of individuals eases what can be a scary experience for our youngest patients. Each room is appropriately equipped for all pediatric emergencies. Among its soothing features is a separate child-friendly waiting room with a nautical theme and a fish tank.
