Kadlec’s new freestanding ER is uniquely designed with you in mind. Our new approach to emergency care changes the way we provide care to you. From the moment you walk in the door, you will find personalized service and timely care that will have you quickly on the road to recovery. All of our processes are designed to bring services directly to the patient bedside; maximizing the amount of time our staff spends with patients and getting you home as quickly as possible.
Our ER Team is specially cross-trained in several areas so the patient does not have to wait for additional medical staff to assist with care. They are part of a unified care team, focused on providing responsive treatment and getting you healthy and back home.
The freestanding ER was thoughtfully designed to allow for private patient bedside care by the entire ER team. Because the facility is freestanding all equipment, lab, and imaging services are dedicated to your needs which in a hospital based ER is shared with other departments. The layout of the building provides for superior comfort, privacy and convenience of our patients and their families. Read More
