Huntsville Memorial Hospital Opens New Emergency and Imaging Center in Madisonville
Huntsville Memorial Hospital is excited to announce that the doors for their new Emergency and Imaging Center in Madisonville, Texas are officially open as of Monday, March 4th.
“Huntsville Memorial Hospital is committed to providing high quality, accessible services throughout the Huntsville and Madisonville area. The new Emergency and Imaging Center will offer area residents convenient access to emergent care in areas where such services were not immediately available,” says Shannon Brown, Chief Executive Officer of Huntsville Memorial Hospital. “This new facility will offer a full range of round-the-clock emergency services to adults and children in the Madisonville area. This endeavor is consistent with our 86-year tradition of providing high quality patient centered care and accessible health services.”
Huntsville Memorial Hospital, a Joint Commission-accredited, not-for-profit acute care community hospital, is partnering with TeamHealth to staff the new facility with highly trained emergency room physicians. TeamHealth also staffs Huntsville Memorial Hospital’s main emergency department, which should assist with provider availability in times of high volume. “This Emergency Center will operate just as an emergency room in a hospital facility, complying with all of the same requirements for hospital-based emergency departments,” said Tracy Campos, Director of Emergency Services for HMH.
The Madisonville Emergency Center will be open 365 days a year, 24 hours per day and handle all types of emergencies from chest pain to stroke symptoms and high blood pressure to general children’s emergencies. Patients requiring inpatient hospital care will be transferred to Huntsville Memorial Hospital. The facility’s staff of highly trained emergency physicians, nursing, and clinical staff have been preparing for the grand opening sine HMH broke ground in August of 2012. This Center is fully equipped just like any hospital emergency department, including comprehensive imaging services. “Outpatient imaging and laboratory services are available as well,” said Jason Loftin, Director of Imaging Services for HMH. “We will have pre-scheduled and walk-in appointments available for our Imaging Center side of the facility every weekday from 8 am to 5 pm. Our state-of-the-art diagnostic technology includes a CT scanner, ultrasound, and digital x-ray,” said Loftin.
“We anticipate this facility will fulfill a need for an emergency room close to home,” Brown said. “Our quality physicians and nursing staff are committed to consistently exceeding patient expectations. We would like to thank the local community for their support thus far and thank them for trusting Huntsville Memorial Hospital for their healthcare needs.”
Huntsville Memorial Hospital’s new Emergency and Imaging Center is located at 3301 East Main Street in Madisonville, across from Bucees. HMH is committed to providing an alternative to today’s overburdened hospital emergency department with the highest standard of care and customer service.
