Emergency Care

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 restoration 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.
