Our 16,000-square-foot Nethercutt ER contains 22
beds and features the latest technology, including an
on-site CT scanner that speeds diagnosis and treatment of
ailments such as chest pain, stroke and breathing disorders.
Other features include all-digital X-ray technology, comfortable
rooms designed for both privacy and treatment flexibility and an
observation area that allows for continuous monitoring of
patients before being admitted to our hospital or discharged. Our
Nethercutt ER also features a pneumatic tube system connected to
our hospital's new Laboratory, thereby improving turnaround times
for lab results. .
STEMI Receiving Center
Our Nethercutt ER was the first designated "STEMI Receiving
Center" for heart-attack patients on the Westside. Under this
designation, our hospital has an established protocol for getting
heart-attack patients from the field to our Cardiac
Catheterization Lab in 90 minutes or less.
Emergency Department Approved for Pediatrics
Additionally, our Nethercutt ER is the city's only "Emergency
Department Approved for Pediatrics." That means it meets
established guidelines for providing age-appropriate emergency
care to infants, young children and adolescents. When
hospitalization is required, these patients can be admitted
directly to our medical center because we also have the city's
only Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and Pediatrics Unit.
We are working to transform our Nethercutt ER into a more
child-friendly environment by using new tools and technologies
that remove some of the pain and respond directly to the unique
needs of children. It's called the "ouchless ER," and it aims to
change not only medical practices, but the actual environment to
make it more "kid-friendly." Read more about our ouchless ER
