It's official! Whether it's a sprained finger, broken arm, or asthma attack, the Edward Plainfield ER is the place to go. That's because our ER was recently ranked #1 in the nation for patient satisfaction (Press Ganey, 2010).
Open 24/7, board certified ER doctors, certified emergency nurses, ER wait times available when you need them - it's no wonder we're also the most preferred ER in the region (National Research Corporation, 2009).
"The Edward Plainfield ER is open 24/7 to take care of small emergencies like high fevers and stitches to more serious emergencies such as asthma attacks and broken bones," says Pete Schubel, MD, medical director of the new ER. "We'll also be there to handle orthopedic emergencies and serious sports injuries."
The 7,900 square foot, $5.7 million Edward Plainfield ER is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
