We know unexpected medical situations or traumatic injuries can be scary
and unsettling. We also know that excellent emergency care goes beyond
swift, skilled medical attention to provide the personal focus, reassurance,
and emotional support you and your loved ones need. No matter what you’re
facing, you can rely on CaroMont Health for quick, advanced, compassionate
emergency care 24 hours a day.
Designated a Level III Trauma Center, the CaroMont Regional Medical Center
Emergency Department recently completed a renovation and expansion project
to better serve our growing region’s changing needs. Following an
innovative patient flow model, the newly-designed ED will enhance emergency
and trauma care capabilities and transform the way patients receive emergency
medical treatment. It is equipped and staffed to provide care for a wide
range of conditions, including trauma, medical, cardiac, neurological,
orthopaedic, pediatric and psychiatric emergencies.
The new ED represents the largest renovation project at CaroMont Regional
since 2004, adding 10,000 additional square feet to the existing department,
as well as 20,000 square feet of administrative space. CaroMont’s
team of board-certified emergency medicine physicians, nurses, physician
assistants and clinical staff are better able to offer patients every
advantage in life-saving emergency care in a family-friendly, state-of-the-art
space 24 hours a day.
Features of the new ED include:
- An expanded entrance with convenient patient drop-off, ample parking areas
and semi-controlled access.
- Separate adult and pediatric treatment and waiting areas, including a Pediatric
Care Center and Results Lounge
- Larger and more efficient triage intake area and four consultation rooms.
- Updated patient rooms with added privacy and comfort.
- On-site laboratory and Imaging Suite comprised of computed tomography (CT)
equipment to help expedite patient care.
- Convenient ambulance bay and drive-through garage.
We also operate a freestanding emergency department, CaroMont Regional
Medical Center – Mount Holly, extending emergency coverage to eastern
Gaston, southern Lincoln and western Mecklenburg counties. This modern,
38,000-square-foot facility is state-licensed to provide hospital-level
emergency care 24 hours a day. Patients will experience a progressive
emergency care experience, designed to streamline the process and deliver
appropriate treatment as soon as possible.
