East Alabama Medical Center’s new Freestanding Emergency Department, located in EAMC’s also new Auburn Medical Pavilion, will begin operation on Wednesday, June 23 at 7 a.m.
Located at 900 Camp Auburn Road near the intersection of Shug Jordan Parkway and South College Street, this 12-bed, Level 3 trauma center is the first freestanding emergency department in the Auburn-Opelika area and the sixth in the state, according to EAMC.
Sexual assault victims may seek special care through the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners program at the facility. The center also has both an ambulance bay and a helicopter landing pad to accept emergency vehicles.
“It is so exciting to extend our emergency services into the Auburn area to better serve our communities,” said Amy Brandon, East Alabama Health Emergency Department executive director. “This campus will also provide level-three trauma care with the same skilled physicians, nurses, and support staff as our other two emergency department campuses in Opelika and Valley. We are thankful for this beautiful facility in Auburn that provides 12 additional exam rooms to our service.”
The emergency department is located on the first floor of the building, which also holds diagnostic radiology services, a laboratory and a pharmacy for use with emergency patients.
Outpatient radiology services will be available Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., while lab services are available Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. East Alabama Apothecary, the retail pharmacy on the first floor, will be open Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
