Mercy announces plans to open area's first and only free standing Emergency Room in Perrysburg
Mercy is changing the face of emergency care in Northwest Ohio with plans to build the region's first full-service, free-standing emergency and diagnostics center
in Perrysburg, Ohio.
Conveniently located just off 475 near the corner of Route 25 and Eckel Junction Road, the ER will be staffed by board certified and board eligible ER physicians and a team of experienced emergency staff delivering comprehensive emergency services around the clock (24/7).
"The new center will treat all levels of illness and injury no matter the age of the patient, much like a community hospital's emergency room", said Chris Goliver, MD, medical director of Mercy LifeStar and Life Flight services. "Whether you're 6 months or 92 years old, we will serve and treat you with the high quality of care that has been synonymous with the Mercy name for more than 157 years."
As a full-service ER, the facility will serve a wide range of patients, including those who require a higher level of care brought in by EMS providers. The ER will be designed to treat patients suffering from a wide range of health issues from strokes and heart attacks, to respiratory distress, head injuries, abdominal pain, sports and orthopedic injuries and more. Patients needing to be admitted to the hospital will be treated, stabilized and transported as appropriate. The facility has immediate access for ambulances and a helipad will be available if needed for rapid transport.
The 15,000 square foot facility will feature:
- 10 exam rooms
- Lab services
- Imaging services (MRI scans, CT scans, 3D Mammography, Digital Radiology, Ultrasounds, Dexascans)
Building our area's first freestanding ER is another step in our journey to enhancing access to quality healthcare services for residents in the communities we serve.
Groundbreaking is anticipated to be held Fall 2012, with the facility opening in 2013.
