Emergency

 

Baptist Hospital has one of the largest Emergency Centers in the state.

The 67,000-square-foot E.R. is home to the second busiest emergency center in South Florida, treating more than 80,000 patients each year. It has a total of 100 exam rooms, 20 of which are part of the Children's Emergency Center. Included are six state-of-the-art trauma rooms (four trauma rooms for adult patients and two for pediatric patients) equipped with sophisticated technology to manage the most severe injuries.

The Emergency Center is located on the ground floor of the Victor E. Clarke Pavilion, a four-story building which opened in November 2008. Located on the east side of the campus, the pavilion is near the former emergency room. The 654,000-square foot expansion includes a 120,000-square-foot bed tower with 96 inpatient beds, and a seven-story parking garage. Altogether, the expansion cost $134 million. The Pavilion is named for local philanthropist and honorary Baptist Health Foundation Board member Victor E. Clarke. His gift of $10 million led Baptist Health Foundation's campaign to raise funds for the project.

All emergency patients are treated regardless of their ability to pay. However, like most emergency departments, patients with insurance are expected to pay their co-payment upon discharge. Personal checks, cash and major credit cards are accepted.
