The Emergency Center
Each year more than 60,000 residents from the High Point, Winston-Salem and Greensboro areas choose High Point Regional to care for them in all types of emergencies. That’s why we’ve invested heavily in the Emergency Center. A major renovation and addition to the Emergency Center was completed in 2001, which essentially doubled the size of the Center. Even more importantly, the changes brought about by the construction have helped make waiting times drop and patient satisfaction increase steadily.
In fact, our nurse triaging system makes it possible for each patient to be assessed by one of our nurses within the first few minutes of their arrival, and to see a provider from Regional Emergency Physicians shortly thereafter.
The new Emergency Center also features private rooms for each patient. No more thin curtains between you and the patient next to you. Our patients consistently comment on how wonderful it is to have this level of privacy.
Perhaps most importantly, the Emergency Center features some of the most high-tech diagnostic and treatment equipment in the country. For instance, our filmless radiology system is the first such system in our region and one of only a handful in the United States. This system represents a great leap forward in diagnosing problems quickly and accurately, allowing treatment to begin as soon as possible. Our high-tech focus makes it possible for the Emergency Center to treat everything from broken bones and stitches to complicated traumas.
Yet with all of this high tech capability, we haven't forgotten the art of delivering compassionate care. Together, the physicians of Regional Emergency Physicians and our nursing staff work to make the experience of each patient and family member the best it can be.
