Memorial Hospital December 18, 2015

Memorial Hospital is proud to announce plans to open a free-standing emergency room in Mandarin to meet the community's growing needs. The 10,000 square foot facility will be built near the corner of San Jose and I-295. This site will be Memorial's third free-standing ER in the region.

"We know people want to be treated quickly when they experience a medical emergency, which is why we are committed to bringing emergency care to people in a quick, convenient setting," said Memorial Hospital President & CEO Jim O'Loughlin. "We have seen a steady flow of adult and pediatric patients at our other two free-standing emergency rooms, reaffirming the growing demand for quick, convenient emergency care closer to residents' homes."

Memorial is expected to break ground on the facility in early 2016. When the 24-hour ER opens to patients, it will be a full-service ER complete with advanced imaging and lab services. This facility will be licensed by the State as an Emergency Department and will operate just like an ER that is attached to a hospital.

"We are looking forward to meeting the residents' needs in this part of our community," said Emergency Services Administrator Amy Riley, RN. "Like our other three ER locations, our full-service Emergency Room in Mandarin will serve children and adults with a highly qualified staff trained to take care of everything from broken bones to chest pain."

The Memorial Emergency Center - Mandarin will be Memorial Hospital's third free-standing ER and Memorial's 4th ER location. In October of 2012 Memorial opened the first free-standing emergency room in the region, the Memorial Emergency Center - Julington Creek. In July of 2014, Memorial opened a second free-standing emergency room, the Memorial Emergency Center - Atlantic. In its first year, the Atlantic location treated 17,000 patients, 4,000 of whom were children.
