Quick, Efficient Emergency Care
In an emergency situation, every second counts. So, when it came time to design the emergency department which opened in 2012, improving access and expediting care were top priorities. Our location is easily accessible from I-80, I-355 and Route 6.
Each of the 34 patient rooms and 4 Trauma rooms are glass-enclosed for noise reduction and privacy and have mobile furniture which allows the flexibility to bring in lifesaving equipment and medical supplies according to the patient’s needs.
The Emergency Department is located next to Diagnostic Imaging for speedy results. There is a dedicated elevator to transport patients up one floor to the Procedural Care Unit for emergency interventions and surgery. And, for those patients who require admission to the hospital, it is a short trip in the elevator to one of our 295 family-friendly private rooms.
Patients also have convenient access to their electronic medical records through MYSilverCross. And with Walgreens onsite, you have the opportunity to obtain any prescribed medications before you leave. In fact, they will be delivered to your room!
* Physicians on Silver Cross Hospital’s Medical Staff have expertise in their areas of practice to meet the needs of patients seeking their care. These physicians are independent practitioners on the Medical Staff and are not the agents or employees of Silver Cross Hospital. They treat patients based upon their independent medical judgment and they bill patients separately for their services.
