Rose Medical Center and HealthOne have announced plans for an 11,000 square foot, free-standing emergency department to be constructed next year in the Northfield neighborhood of Stapleton. It will be located on Northfield Boulevard, just west of the 7-11 store. The facility will be staffed seven days a week, 24 hours a day by a board-certified emergency medicine physician, two registered nurses and an experienced paramedic. All RNs are experienced in emergency and pediatric medicine and hold all the necessary certifications to practice emergency medicine for the entire family. Based on HealthOne’s experience at five similar facilities in the metro area, they anticipate that 98 percent of patients will arrive using their own transportation, although the facility will also accommodate ambulance service and will be able to provide critical care for time-sensitive cases.
