Emergency Care

CaroMont Health’s Emergency Services team consists of board-certified physicians trained in emergency medicine and nurses specially trained to assess and provide care for a wide range of conditions, including trauma, medical cardiac, neurological, orthopaedic, pediatric and psychiatric emergencies.

A Level III Trauma center, CaroMont Regional Medical Center Emergency Department provides skilled and swift attention to patients with emergency medical conditions or traumatic injuries. In fact, all patients entering the CaroMont Regional Emergency Department are seen by a registered nurse within minutes of their arrival.

With more than 50 beds, CaroMont Health’s Emergency Services offers two major cardiac care rooms, two trauma rooms, a Care Initiation Area with a physician in triage during peak hours, Express Care for minor emergencies and in-department radiological services. In 2013, CaroMont’s Emergency Services introduced advanced teleneurology services to help diagnose stroke or other neurological conditions. Quick assessment and treatment is critical and teleneurology is a valuable tool in providing our patients with the best possible outcomes.

The Emergency Department at CaroMont Regional Medical Center is currently undergoing a major renovation and expansion. Scheduled to open in early 2016, the new area will include a 10,000 square foot expansion and include a separate pediatric waiting and treatment area.

CaroMont Regional Medical Center - Mount Holly
Staffed with board-certified emergency medicine physicians, CaroMont Regional Medical Center in Mount Holly serves residents in eastern Gaston, southern Lincoln and western Mecklenburg counties. The 38,000-square foot facility, featuring an in-house laboratory and imaging suite, is state-licensed to provide hospital-level emergency care 24 hours a day.

Patients at Mount Holly encounter a new emergency care experience. Immediately after check-in, patients will be seen in one of six Rapid Medical Evaluation (RME) rooms to be triaged. After initial assessment and triage, patients will be taken to one of twelve treatment rooms or the Results Lounge. Critical patients in need of additional care, such as surgery or hospitalization, will be stabilized in the two resuscitation rooms and transferred to the main campus of CaroMont Regional Medical Center.
