Freestanding Emergency Department

Brookwood Freestanding Emergency Department exteriorOur Freestanding Emergency Department is  a 25,000-square-foot facility, located at the intersection of US 280 and Alabama 119 in north Shelby County. One of the first of its kind in Alabama, Brookwood Baptist Health's freestanding emergency room will provide hospital-level emergency services.

The facility provides around-the-clock care by board-certified emergency medicine physicians, and specialty physicians available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. With a full range of on-site diagnostic and lab services, patients can be treated for a variety of unexpected emergencies.

Freestanding ED vs Urgent Care Clinic

How do you know which of these facilities is most appropriate when a family member becomes ill or injured and the doctor’s office is closed? A freestanding emergency room is an extension of a hospital that operates as its own entity, while maintaining the same functionality of the hospital based emergency department.
