One year ago today (August 19, 2013), WakeMed Garner Healthplex opened its doors, offering a full-service emergency department, comprehesive imaging services and on-site laboratory services to the Garner community.
In its first year, the Garner Healthplex Emergency Department saw close to 22,000 patients, including more than 17,00 adults and 4,000+ children. The facility saw upwards of 2,000 patients each month for the last five months (March through July), with numbers continuing to grow.
At the WakeMed Garner Healthplex Emergency Department, services for children and adults are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including :
- 10 private treatment rooms
- X-ray, CT scan and ultrasound testing
- An ambulance receiving area
- A dedicated patient reception and waiting room
- Pediatric emergency services backed by WakeMed Children’s
The facility is staffed by the same, board-certified emergency physicians that care for patients in WakeMed’s Level I Trauma Center on WakeMed Raleigh Campus. Additionally, Garner Healthplex provides comprehensive imaging services for adults and children, including MRI, CT scan, X-ray and ultrasound, as well as an on-site laboratory offering specimen collection for a variety of tests.
