Seven hours. For many people that’s a day at work, or a good night’s sleep.
When it comes to your health or the health of your loved ones, every second counts. So rather than spending valuable time in the hospital, let’s discuss five reasons why Beaumont Emergency Hospital is the right choice for you.
Less Time in the Waiting Room, More Time with the Doctor
On average, seven hours is the total number of hours spent in a hospital emergency room. Last time we checked, many families can’t afford the time away from work to spend waiting. We know that time matters in an emergency. With 24/7 availability and little to no wait time, we guarantee that you will see one of our board certified physicians as quickly as possible. Here’s a comparison of a visit to the hospital ER versus our center.
Average Time in ER from Arrival to Discharge
- Hospital – 2.6 hours AFTER seeing the physician
- BEC – less than an hour
Average Time Waiting to See the Physician
- Hospital – 55.8 minutes
- BEC – 5 minutes
Average Time in ER Waiting for Hospital Bed
- Hospital – 4-5 hours
- BEC – about an hour
In addition to the time constraints, hospital emergency rooms are often crowded, uncomfortable with no space to privately gather your thoughts with your family. Beaumont Emergency Hospital offers not only a welcoming reception area with front-desk personnel, we also provide a comfortable waiting area with drinks, snacks and a flat-screen LED TV.
Our Services are Quick and Reliable
When life’s medical emergencies are out of your control, Beaumont Emergency Hospital is able to care for it all. In the case of an emergency here’s what you can expect:
- Prompt placement in a private exam room with direct nursing evaluation
- Quickly seen by the physician within minutes upon arrival at our facility
- In-house emergency labs performed and resulted within minutes
- In-house digital X-ray and CT scans as well as bedside ultrasounds
- A quiet environment to provide you expedited and excellent care
Board-Certified Physicians are the Only Doctors You’ll See
With 24/7 availability and little to no wait time, we guarantee that you will see one of our board certified physicians as quickly as possible. Our physicians are all board certified, meaning they have demonstrated that they are capable of handling a wide range of medical situations and that they are proficient in various sub-specialties. In their care, your medical emergency will be dealt with swiftly and effectively.
Pediatric Care at its Finest
When children feel safe and comfortable, they have less anxiety about the visit to the doctor’s office or emergency room. Although we strive to see each patient within a few minutes of their arrival, children are given the highest priority and are typically brought straight back to a comfortable and private evaluation room. Not only will your child be expedited to a private room, but they will be seen on a priority basis by our physicians
We also offer the following in pediatric care:
- We design our emergency rooms to be comfortable and safe, with updated color schemes and nurturing artwork designed to be less frightening than an adult exam room might seem to a child.
- We also maintain kid-friendly toys and stuffed animals to help calm and reassure your child during their emergency.
- Furthermore, by offering your child and family a clean and private area in which to be treated, we minimize risk of exposure to other illnesses that are present in the typical emergency setting.
Care Doesn’t Stop When You Leave
Our commitment to excellence at Beaumont Emergency Hospital includes a partnership with local and regional specialists to help continue your medical care and help with your follow-up needs. Should you require hospitalization, we have strong relationships with local and regional hospitals, and specialists from every field of medicine. Should you require transfer to a hospital we will arrange every detail, from communicating with the specialty network of physicians, to ensuring safe transport by trained paramedics.
Our commitment to your needs continues long after your visit, and will include follow-up phone calls from our staff to make sure your or your loved one’s recovery, follow-up and after care are going smoothly. And, of course, we are here for you 24/7, 365 days a year. We welcome your comments and suggestions and phone calls any time.
At Beaumont Emergency Center, we believe an ER should do more than restore your health; it should make the process as relaxing and stress-free as possible. When you come to BEC, you know you’re getting excellent, comfortable, fast medical treatment from a team that cares.
