Emergency Department

Accidents and emergencies are unforeseeable events that are not controllable. Providing appropriate, timely, and effective treatment to emergency patients significantly enhances their chances of survival. The same principle applies to assisting emergency patients outside the hospital setting, which requires proper first aid at the scene to remove victims from danger. Additionally, a well-defined protocol for swift and secure patient transfer is crucial in ensuring that trauma patients receive continuous care and timely treatment from specialists, facilitating their gradual physical and mental recovery.

In addition to thorough preparation for emergencies, collaboration among a multidisciplinary team of emergency physicians, intensivists, and other specialists is paramount. The specialists at MedPark Hospital, spanning every department, work seamlessly as a team to deliver timely treatment and resuscitate emergency patients around the clock. MedPark Hospital has established comprehensive processes for both ground and air medical transportation. Moreover, the hospital features a helipad and a dedicated area for emergency procedures, ensuring that the medical staff can promptly attend to patients and administer treatment upon arrival. The helipad facilitates the transfer of patients to the appropriate destination unit via an extra-large elevator, supporting in-transit elevator resuscitation.
 
Recognizing the critical importance of every moment in aiding trauma victims -- the Emergency Department at MedPark Hospital is meticulously equipped with state-of-the-art medical tools and equipment to optimize treatment efficacy. Notably, the availability of in-department CT scanners, X-rays, and dedicated pneumatic tube transport to the fully automated central laboratories ensures swift test results, minimizes waiting times, and expedites the diagnostic process. Furthermore, a cutting-edge hybrid operating room, equipped with an Artis Icono biplane angiography system and a hydraulic operating table with full-length X-ray transparency, enhances surgical precision. This innovative setup enables surgeons to perform procedures with multiple approaches simultaneously, significantly improving accuracy and efficiency.
 
When fully operational, MedPark Hospital will have an impressive 130 Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and Critical Care Unit (CCU) rooms, constituting 30 percent of the hospital bed capacity, making it the largest regional single critical care unit. The dedicated team of highly experienced critical care nurses provides vigilant monitoring at a ratio of 1:1 or 1:2 around the clock, ensuring timely assistance and intervention. Moreover, the hospital features 18 unique acuity convertible inpatient rooms that can seamlessly transition into critical care rooms without moving the patient to regular critical care units.

The hospital deploys many inpatients, critical care, and operating rooms with negative pressure that surpasses standard requirements. These specialized rooms play a crucial role in reducing and preventing the risk of infection, further emphasizing MedPark Hospital's commitment to patient safety and well-being.
