HCA Virginia’s John Randolph Medical Center announces the opening of its new TriCities Emergency Center, a free standing ER that officially opens today.
Located at 1700 Temple Parkway in Prince George, the new 11,000 square-foot free standing ER is staffed with board-certified emergency room physicians and nurses 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
“This is a great opportunity for the community. It’s a continuation of the fulfillment of community need that John Randolph has exhibited over many years, said Aimee Cocolin, vice president of operations, John Randolph Medical Center. “We’re leveraging the expertise of our health system to ensure that we can take care of the most critical patients in their time of need.”
Designed to meet the community’s needs, the new center will feature
- A separate pediatric entrance and waiting area
- 11 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
“The goal of TriCities Emergency Center is to bring care to our patients so that they can access it as quickly as possible,” said Cocolin. “While our approach to treatment has advanced, we continue to deliver what this community should demand, which is warm, compassionate and high quality healthcare.”
According to hospital officials, patients visiting TriCities Emergency Center can expect the same level of care as a hospital-based emergency department. Should the patient require in-patient treatment, TriCities has access to a number of other leading area hospitals as part of the HCA network, including John Randolph Medical Center, Chippenham Hospital and Johnston-Willis Hospital.
