Oklahoma ER & Hospital
Oklahoma ER & Hospital isn’t the average emergency room. The first difference visitors might notice is the cozy waiting area. It features comfortable chairs, inviting art, and even a snack bar. But most patients don’t have to sit there long. Within five minutes of entering the hospital, you will be seen by one of their Board-Certified Emergency Room Physicians. “We treat and diagnose patients within an hour,” says marketing director Makailyn Dillon. The hospital is open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, and physicians are on site at all times. MRIs, CT Scans, X-rays and bedside ultrasounds are also available 24/7 for patients. With nine emergency beds, a triage room and four inpatient beds, Oklahoma ER & Hospital can focus on individualized, personal care.
Oklahoma ER & Hospital is classified as a micro hospital—an independently licensed facility that operates in a smaller space than traditional hospitals. It’s the first micro hospital in the OKC metro area. After two and a half years of preparation, OKER opened its doors to patients in January 2019. The hospital is solely physician- owned, and the physicians who serve on the board are the same doctors you’ll see when you come in for treatment. Support staff are also very well-trained and qualified. All nurses have at least five years of experience in local Oklahoma emergency rooms.
Along with high-quality emergency-room care, Oklahoma ER & Hospital offers many tests and screening procedures. These procedures are scheduled in advance, with approval from a patient’s physician. Once approved, patients can make appointments for any time that’s convenient for them. The 24-hour onsite pharmacy and laboratory also help people avoid the long waits that sometimes happen at larger facilities.
Oklahoma ER & Hospital’s commitment to the community doesn’t stop with medical care. “We’re very community focused,” says Dillon. The hospital sponsors the Edmond North Huskies baseball team and honors a Student of the Month from Edmond and Deer Creek schools. Oklahoma ER & Hospital will offer college scholarships, parties, and special events like a Teddy Bear Clinic. Active Shooter and “Stop the Bleed” courses will also be available to the community.
Many of Oklahoma ER & Hospital’s outreaches focus on children. “We want to teach kids that going to the doctor or hospital can be a pleasant experience,” says Dillon. There is even a pediatric friendly treatment room at the hospital.
Oklahoma ER & Hospital will showcase its new facility at a grand opening event on February 9, 2019. The community is invited to tour
the hospital and enjoy refreshments, prizes, giveaways, and inflatables for the kids.
“We are your new neighborhood ER & Hospital,” saysMakailynDillon. “Oklahomans work hard for their family and their health insurance. Here at Oklahoma ER & Hospital, we believe you deserve more when it comes to emergency care. You can rely on us to be there when you and your family need it most.”
