Brookwood Plans October Opening for FED

May 22, 2015
Birmingham Business Journal – May 22 – Brookwood Medical Center is currently constructing a $19 million freestanding emergency room at the intersection of U.S. 280 and Alabama 119, and hospital officials expect the project to be complete by late October.

unknown-14-750xx1941-1098-658-0 Despite running into initial rain delays in April, Brookwood Chief Development Officer Mike Rickman said the 25,000-square-foot facility is coming online nicely. It will consist of 12 beds for trauma, obstetrics and mental health, an on-site pharmacy and full diagnostic services including MRI, CT and x-ray scans. The building will also feature a helipad. Brookwood CEO Chuck Stark said the project will help in two areas: patient conveniency and consistent clinical expertise. "The facility will increase the convenience and accessibility for folks at (Alabama) 119 and further east because we all experience, some of us on a daily basis, the (U.S.) 280 chug. That compelled us to offer these services," he said. "The second is that the same ER physicians that cover Brookwood and are well-known and well-respected for years will be providing the same physician coverage at the freestanding emergency department." Stark expects the facility to handle around 15,000 patient visits annually, and he said that wait times will dramatically decrease at Brookwood's main hospital campus.
