What's ER Extra?
We are the community’s exclusive provider of ER Extra™, a new approach to the emergency room experience, designed to give you extra fast, extra easy and extra great care.
By the time you enter our emergency room, every minute – every second – seems like forever. That’s why the clock starts ticking the moment your name enters our system at the registration desk. In general, initial assessments take place within 15 minutes of arrival. Patients with non-life threatening conditions can expect to be evaluated, treated and discharged to their home in typically less than two hours. To deliver the fastest quality care possible, the emergency room has a computerized tracking system that records every second you spend there. This data is constantly reviewed by your treatment team to streamline processes and speed up the time it takes to deliver care. The result is that you see a member of the clinical team sooner, so treatment can begin quicker.
Board certified doctors and highly trained staff are by your side throughout your visit. They are there to explain your diagnosis and how it will be treated, as well as discuss any follow up care you may need.
Extra great care
