Your Health: August 13, 2013 Brookwood Freestanding ER

Posted: Updated:
Birmingham, AL -

People living and working along Highway 280 will soon have faster access to an emergency room.
     Today, the Alabama Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the state's decision to allow Brookwood Medical Center to open a free standing emergency department in North Shelby County.
     The court believed it could make the difference between life and death for some children and adults.
     The 19 million dollar emergency department will be the first of its kind in Alabama.
     The facility will have 24-hour fully staffed laboratory services, along with pharmacy and diagnostic services, including CT, MRI, X-ray and ultrasound.  
     The ruling upholds the Certificate of Need awarded to Brookwood in 2010.
