Southern Hills Hospital & Medical Center is excited to announce it will be opening a second provider-based emergency room at the corner of Blue Diamond and El Capitan. ER at Blue Diamond—a Department of Southern Hills Hospital & Medical Center—will allow faster and more convenient access to medical care for thousands of southern Nevadans by providing full-service emergency and critical care services for adults and children.
Unlike an urgent care, ER at Blue Diamond will be staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week by board-certified emergency room physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals providing services available at hospital emergency rooms, with significantly shorter wait times. The new facility will include around-the-clock laboratory testing, X-ray, CT scanning and ultrasound. Patients who require additional emergent care will be admitted to affiliated hospitals.
“Our hospital continues to provide fast ER care where our patients need access in a convenient, neighborhood location,” said Adam Rudd, Chief Executive Officer, Southern Hills Hospital & Medical Center. “With this second provider-based emergency room opening, we are able to offer the community a full spectrum of care in a location close to home and with a significantly shorter wait time.”
More information on the new facility and its opening will be announced in the coming weeks.
