AAMC Main Hospital

All of our expansion is critical to providing even better patient care. A highlight is the expansion of our emergency room, which includes a new pediatrics emergency department.

Three years after a temporary setup to accommodate construction, the emergency department moved into its new space. It includes two waiting rooms, greeter/reception, eight triage bays, blood draw stations, and new treatment rooms.

The walk-in entrance is on the east side of the building (near the ambulance entrance). In the new Pediatrics ED youngsters under 18 receive emergency treatment in an area separate from adults. There is a separate pediatric waiting room with bright, child-friendly décor.

Young patients who must be admitted to the hospital won’t have to be transported out of the ED. They will be admitted to the new inpatient unit in the ED, which has 16 beds. Pediatric hospitalist Dr. Michael Clemmens is the director of the pediatrics ED.
