The ExpressCare area is open 10 am – 10 pm, seven days a week and is staffed by a Physician Assistant or Nurse Practitioner, a Registered Nurse and an ER Patient Care Technician.
ExpressCare is designed to provide a decreased length of stay for non-emergency ER visits. Emergency cases may be seen in this area at the discretion of the Emergency Services staff. All treatment provided in the ExpressCare is done so with the collaboration of the Emergency Department physician on duty.
Patients seen in the ExpressCare area are still triaged through the emergency department to determine severity of illness before moving to this area.
