We recently developed and implemented a new patient- and family-centered emergency medicine modelthat is designed to get patients into an ED bed more quickly and provide other advantages to the traditional emergency care model.
Patient- and family-centered care is important to us. While we generally allow one family member (or other support person) to accompany a patient inside the patient care area, there may be restrictions in place due to COVID-19. Please read our Visitor Information page for the latest updates.
