MercyOne Siouxland Medical Center Introduces New Emergency ExperienceAug 06, 2021 12:32PM ● By Med Magazine
MercyOne Siouxland Medical Center is excited to unveil its newly-renovated emergency department and reimagined experience. From the moment you need help, our MercyOne team creates a personalized care experience, including our new Fast Track, the first of its kind in the Siouxland area. Fast Track, open 3 - 11 p.m., gives you rapid access to the right experts in 90 minutes or less. Our Fast Track team will assess and treat less-severe emergencies in a separate waiting area and private patient rooms.
“Our newly-renovated space creates so many new options, not only for our patients, but our colleagues, as well,” said Chris Hawkins, emergency care director for MercyOne Siouxland Medical Center. “Fast Track is the most exciting change. We know time is essential in an emergency and this experience will give our patients with less severe emergencies the chance to get personalized care quickly and efficiently, in a more private setting.”
MercyOne Siouxland Medical Center’s updated emergency department also includes improvements to the waiting area, additional private patient rooms and enhanced provider coverage. Additional security has been added, with 24/7 coverage, in addition to expanded valet hours Monday-Friday from 6 a.m. - 10 p.m.
“It is vital that we have an emergency department that is able to provide appropriate care to anyone that needs it. That’s something we’ve been doing for years here at MercyOne Siouxland Medical Center,” said Dr. Steven Warrington, chair of emergency medicine. “But now, having an emergency department that is clean, welcoming, and modern, to provide that care, is a luxury for Sioux City. It’s just one of the many reasons I chose to take this opportunity at MercyOne Siouxland Medical Center.”
Located in the heart of downtown Sioux City, our emergency department team is ready to provide rapid treatment from the moment you arrive. Our goal is personalized care coordination – from the emergency department to surgery and your primary care doctor – to ensure you get the best care to live your best life.
