Memorial to Open Free-Standing ER at Atlantic & Kernan

Last updated 4 years ago

Memorial Hospital will open its second area free-standing emergency
center in the spring of 2014. The ten bed, more than 9,000 square foot
facility will be located at the intersection of Atlantic Blvd. and Kernan Blvd.,
directly in front of the Kohl’s Department Store. Construction is set to
begin later this year.      
 
The Memorial Emergency Center – Atlantic will be a full-service ER
with a dedicated pediatrics area. This facility will be licensed by the
State as an Emergency Department and will operate just like an ER
that is attached to a hospital.
 
“This is a growing part of Jacksonville,” says Jim O’Loughlin, President
& CEO of Memorial Hospital. “The people in this area will benefit from
having closer access to emergency medical care.”
 
In October of 2012 Memorial opened its first free standing emergency
center, the Memorial Emergency Center – Julington Creek. Since opening,
the Julington Creek location has seen thousands of patients and its
physicians have treated everything from broken bones to heart attacks.
 
“Our experience in Julington Creek tells us people want emergency
care close to them,” Mr. O’Loughlin says. “It’s comforting to know
there’s help nearby if you or a member of your family needs it.”
