Cone Health has opened a new emergency department in Greensboro.
A ribbon-cutting was held Monday for the new emergency department located at Cone Health MedCenter Greensboro at Drawbridge Parkway. It joins MedCenter High Point as the organization's second free-standing emergency facility.
Both departments offer round-the-clock services including imaging, pharmacy, and labs. Officials say that free-standing emergency departments can offer shorter wait times and more convenient parking than hospital-based facilities.
Dr. Mary Jo Cagle, CEO of Cone Health, said in a news release that a second emergency department represents a new direction for the organization, offering 16 treatment rooms, a convenient urban loop location, and quick access to follow-up care.
In addition to the emergency department, the $97 million MedCenter Greensboro offers healthcare and wellness services along with primary and rehabilitation options.
