Medical City ER Red Oak to provide key emergency services for Red Oak and Ellis County community
Medical City Arlington held a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday, December 11 to kick off construction for Medical City ER Red Oak, which will be located at 403 E. Ovilla Road in Red Oak. The facility is scheduled to open in the summer of 2019.
Medical City ER Red Oak will be a full-service emergency room staffed with board certified emergency physicians and open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The 10,840 square foot off-campus emergency department will include 12 private patient treatment rooms, a trauma room, a full laboratory, as well as a radiology suite with X-ray and CT imaging. Medical City ER Red Oak will treat patients of all ages, including pediatric patients.
“As an extension of Medical City Arlington, Medical City ER Red Oak will be staffed by highly trained physicians and experienced ER nurses with advanced certification in pediatric and adult care,” said Keith Zimmerman, CEO of Medical City Arlington. “We are very proud to become part of the Red Oak community. When the facility opens, Ellis County residents will have access to convenient, safe, and quality emergency care services in an area where none currently exist.”
In addition, the facility will have an additional 10,000 square feet of medical office space for Solis Mammography, primary care physicians and other specialists.
Medical City ER Red Oak is part of a major capital investment initiative of more than $1.7 billion spent or committed over four years across the Medical City Healthcare system. Investments include expansion and improvements to existing hospitals, new services such as burn and trauma care, upgraded technology and the purchase and construction of new facilities.
