Features of the New Emergency Department at Sherman Health

April 24, 2009

The Emergency Department at the new Sherman Hospital will have a lot of great features.

The larger awning is the ambulance drive, the smaller awning is for walk-in ER patients.

You can expect:

  • Separate entrances for public and ambulances
    • These entrances lead right into the Emergency Department, and are separate from the main hospital entrance, on the other side of the building. This is part of the smart-flow traffic design of the building, which ultimately makes it safer for patients, and faster for them to be treated.
  • Public Entrances :
    • Waiting Area
    • Pediatric Waiting Area
  • Off the ambulance entrance you have:
    • 2 State-of-the-Art Trauma Bays
    • Decontamination Room
  • Major/Minor treatment rooms are all the same size (this was by design so you could use the rooms for either purpose)
  • unknown-1

  • General X-Ray and CT are in the department
  • 5 Observation Rooms
  • 2 Psychiatric Hold Rooms
  • The Emergency Department is immediately adjacent to:
    • Critical Care Units(ICU/CCU)
    • Surgery
    • Cardiac Catheterization, Electrophysiology, & Interventional Cardiology Labs
    • Inpatient Cardiac Floor

The current Sherman Health Emergency Department has a lot of great features and services as well.  We were designated one of the State’s first Trauma Centers in 1972 and will continue our legacy as a leading Level II Trauma Center in this region.  Visit our website for more information about services and locations.
