South Miami’s brand new Emergency Center, custom designed by medical professionals to maximize quality and timeliness of care, houses 27 emergency beds, including 22 private rooms and a 5 bed area created to treat patients with minor wounds and illnesses. Our rooms feature built-in electronic intensive care (eICU) systems that allow an intensivist and specially trained critical care nurses to monitor patients’ medical conditions electronically 24-hours a day, adding an extra set of highly-trained eyes and ears to assist bedside caregivers.
Located within the Emergency Center is also the Heart Attack Unit, accredited by the Society of Chest Pain. The heart attack team, available 24 hours a day, strives to assess patients quickly and provide the live-saving care they need, including interventional treatment such as cardiac catheterization. They consistently perform angioplasty in less than 60 minutes of a patient’s arrival at the Emergency Center surpassing American Heart Association guidelines of 90 minutes or less.
