The TriCities Emergency Center is scheduled to open in mid-2016
RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) - A new freestanding emergency department is in the works at HCA Virginia’s John Randolph Medical Center. The TriCities Emergency Center will be located at the intersection of Whitehill Boulevard and Temple Avenue in Prince George County, pending approval by the State Health Commissioner of CT imaging services.
“Visits to John Randolph Emergency Department have been rising over recent years, and our existing CT scanner operates far in excess of the state’s expansion standard, indicating that additional capacity is needed to serve our patients,” said Suzanne Jackson, CEO of John Randolph Medical Center. “By approving the new scanner that we need at TriCities Emergency Center, this project will improve access to essential emergency and CT services at both TriCities Emergency Center and on the hospital campus.”
The TriCities Emergency Center is expected to open in mid-2016. Plans also include a dedicated pediatric entrance and waiting area to minimize stress to the youngest patients, as well as a bariatric exam room to ensure that the new center can meet the health care needs of larger patients.
