New Freestanding Emergency Department Opens

Press Release

October 31, 2012

IASIS Healthcare’s Davis Hospital and Medical Center announced that it will break ground on a brand new, freestanding emergency department (ED) in the city of Roy. The $11.4 million project will open its doors in the early summer of 2013.

“We are excited to announce the opening of this new facility,” said Mike Jensen, CEO of Davis Hospital and Medical Center. “Freestanding emergency departments are an innovative concept in the delivery of emergent health care services to the local community with the backup and support of a nearby full service acute care hospital.”

The emergency department will total more than 16,000 square feet and will feature 14 beds, advanced diagnostic imaging capabilities, and a laboratory.

“We’ll be able to bring advanced technology, board-certified physicians, and high-quality, patient-centered emergency care, right to the backyard of the residents of Roy and West Weber County,” said Jensen.

Patients that are seen at the ED in Roy can expect to receive advanced emergency care in a timely manner. The Davis Hospital ED already has some of the shortest wait times and total patient visit times in the state, more than five hours faster than the average Utah hospital. The new freestanding ED will utilize the same patient care innovations such as a patient tracker system, a fast track for less serious medical needs, and bedside registration allowing patients to be evaluated and treated faster.

“There are more than 129,000 people who live in a 5-mile radius of Roy that will benefit enormously by having full service, round the clock emergency care,” said Ed Lamb, Western Group president for IASIS Healthcare.
