Emergency Care Close to Home
Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the Mill Creek ER is standing by to treat a wide variety of emergency conditions, including:
- Severe lacerations
- Broken bones
- Sports injuries
- Allergic reactions
- Food poisoning
- Work-related injuries
- Many other medical emergencies
Patients at this Mill Creek facility are taken directly to an open room, bypassing the typical triage and registration process that result in queuing and frequently long ER wait times. “Direct bedding” of patients, immediate initiation of treatment and in-room registration will improve care and eliminate wasted effort.
Freestanding ER: A Proven Track Record
The Mill Creek ER is patterned after a highly successful model Swedish developed in Issaquah. Opened in March 2005, the Issaquah facility was the first freestanding ER in the region. In 2009, The Swedish Issaquah emergency department was named best emergency department in the region by Consumers’ CHECKBOOK and also received the prestigious Summit Award by Press Ganey Associates – the health-care satisfaction industry’s most coveted mark of achievement – for maintaining patient satisfaction scores in the 95th percentile or above for at least three years.
Access to an Electronic Health Record
All physicians at Mill Creek have access to Epic, Swedish's secure electronic health records system, so vital information can be conveyed easily among a patient's authorized caregivers. The system provides a common platform for clinicians to share medical documentation, test results, prescriptions – and information can be sent to any Epic facility where a patient is treated.
