John Randolph Medical Center to Break Ground on New Free Standing Emergency Center
HCA Virginia’s John Randolph Medical Center held a ground-breaking ceremony in early November for the new TriCities Emergency Center, a free standing ER set to open in mid-2017.
“We’ve been a proud member of the TriCities community for over 100 years,” said Suzanne Jackson, CEO of John Randolph Medical Center. “With the significant growth this area has seen, we recognized a need to provide additional high quality emergency services for our neighbors.”
The new 11,000 square-foot free standing ER will be staffed with board-certified emergency room physicians and nurses 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Designed to meet the community’s needs, the new center will feature a separate pediatric entrance and waiting area, private treatment rooms, CT capabilities, Digital ultrasound, Digital diagnostic & portable X-rays, on-site laboratory, telemedicine technology with a specific focus on stroke care and behavioral health.
“TriCities Emergency Center, as part of the HCA network of hospitals, can provide the area residents with increased access to all levels of service – including the most critical of patients,” said Jackson.
