The Radutzky Emergency Department is a Level I Trauma Center that provides quality care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is staffed by Board Certified Attending physicians and a team of specially trained, skilled nurses and ancillary staff. With its open-space concept, up-to-the minute technology and fast response time, this ER is one of the busiest in the city with almost 100,000 visits a year.
Key features of our Emergency Department include:
Streamline traffic flow and ensures that patients are more quickly and precisely directed for the appropriate level of care, whether that is an operating room or a hospital bed.
Shifts increasingly away from the primary care so common in inner-city emergency rooms and toward the critical care that represents true emergencies.
Functions as an open space, better enabling physicians and nurses to more closely monitor patients.
Utilizes the most modern equipment, such as a new CT scan and ancillary services including filmless radiology.
Uniquely allow physicians outside the Brookdale ED to link through the internet on a personal computer for radiology, EKG or other patient readings.
