Broward Health North is honored to win this year’s Reader’s Choice award of Best Emergency Room. Opened in December of 2016, Broward Health North’s Emergency Department provides the latest in healthcare technology while keeping patient experience in mind. The 36,000 square foot facility features 53 universal treatment rooms combined with three dedicated trauma bays and a dedicated pediatrics area. Each treatment room is built with a sliding glass door that can be closed for patients seeking privacy. The trauma bays are strategically located next to the EMS entrance in the Level II Trauma Center, as are two dedicated medical resuscitation rooms. An elevator only used to transport patients from the ER to Broward Health North’s six new state of the art operating suites stands just feet away from the trauma bays. The enhanced ER provides more support to the comprehensive stroke center, the cutting edge cardiovascular center and decontamination room.
The driving force behind the construction of the new Emergency Department was patient comfort seeking to provide a better patient experience. Patient comfort is evident throughout the Emergency Department. Each private room features a built-in bench where family members can sit right at the bedside and engage in the patient’s plan of care. There is also a television in each room for families and patients to be entertained while tests are taking place. Soothing photographs and murals in the room brings a calming effect to the hospital setting. Broward’s newest Emergency Room is open and ready to assist you for all of your medical needs.
