Delray Medical Center to Open Emergency Center in Lake Worth

Apr 19, 2016

Lake Worth, Fla. (April 20, 2016) – In just a few weeks, a new type of emergency care will arrive in Lake Worth as Delray Medical Center prepares to open the area’s first stand-alone Emergency Center.

Designed for minimal wait times in a warm, home-like environment, the Emergency Center is an extension of Delray Medical Center’s Emergency Department and will offer the same high-quality treatment and diagnostic services in an easy-access location.

Slated to open in May, the Emergency Center will be staffed by board-certified emergency room physicians and specially trained clinicians. It will be equipped to handle serious conditions, such as lacerations, orthopedic and sports injuries, dehydration, abdominal pain, respiratory problems, head injuries, strokes and heart attacks. Additionally, the center will feature dedicated rooms for bariatrics, behavioral health, OB/GYN and trauma patients. 

“This endeavor allows us to extend our services into an underserved area and provide superior healthcare to a larger population,” said Mark Bryan, chief executive officer. “As a result, residents of Lake Worth and surrounding neighborhoods will have the opportunity to experience prompt, around-the-clock care close to home.”

At Delray Medical Center’s Emergency Center, patients will have access to convenient high level services, including:

  • Advanced CT Scan, X-Ray and Ultrasound Imaging
  • Clinical Laboratory Services
  • Clinical Pharmacy Services
  • Respiratory Care
  • Ambulance Access
  • Stroke and Chest Pain Care

“We will expedite the delivery of high-quality emergency services so that our patient’s wait times are as minimal as possible,” added Henry Wagner, MD, medical director of the Emergency Center. “I look forward to being part of this exciting initiative.”

The Emergency Center will be located at 6250 Lantana Road in Lake Worth. For more information, please visit delraymedicalctr.com/FSED.
