What is a healthcare pavilion?
A healthcare pavilion is a modern concept designed to improve access to quality, comprehensive care for patients of all ages. CMC-Harrisburg includes an emergency department operated and staffed just like a hospital emergency department, with services available 24 hours a day, seven days a week from physicians who are board-certified in Emergency Medicine.
CMC-Harrisburg has six exam/treatment rooms and one observation bed for patients who need extended examination and treatment. Advanced imaging equipment, including a state-of-the-art CT scanner, ultrasound, and X-ray/fluoroscopy will be available on-site, providing the same level of diagnostic capability as a hospital emergency room. It also has a full range of laboratory services for patient care, and a helipad for patients who need to be flown to a hospital for care.
The new facility is another place where patients can receive quality care from the region’s most trusted, most comprehensive healthcare source – Carolinas HealthCare System.
Why a healthcare pavilion?
Studies have shown that nearly 90 percent of the patients who come to an emergency department don’t need to be admitted to a hospital. They either need emergency outpatient treatment or a scheduled outpatient procedure. A healthcare pavilion provides another access point in a growing community where patients can get a high level of care from experienced physicians and other healthcare professionals.
Is this a new idea?
Carolinas HealthCare System has operated healthcare pavilions since 2009, and now has six freestanding emergency departments open in the region. Healthcare pavilions have been around for many years in other states.
