Plaistow, NH – Parkland Medical Center announces plans to bring 24/7 life-saving emergency care to Plaistow and surrounding communities with the construction of a new freestanding emergency room (FSER) at 26 Plaistow Road, Route 125, Plaistow, NH.
“We want to thank the Plaistow Town Planning Board for their approval of the freestanding Plaistow ER, which will provide patients who live and work in the greater Plaistow region with 24 hours a day, 365 days a year emergency services in a convenient local healthcare access point,” said John Skevington, chief executive officer of Parkland Medical Center.
Projected to open late spring of 2023, Parkland Medical Center’s nearly 10,000 square-foot Plaistow ER will be staffed by board-certified or board-eligible Emergency Room physicians and nurses, 24-hours a day, 365 days a year, just like an emergency room that is housed within the walls of a hospital.
“Currently, the closest ER to Plaistow is almost 15 minutes away and in an emergency, every minute counts. Having local access to emergency medical care 24-hours a day, seven days a week will save lives and enhance patient recovery in Southern New Hampshire. We’re honored to continue Parkland Medical Center’s tradition of providing the highest quality of patient-centered healthcare to the communities that we serve with the opening of a new freestanding ER in Plaistow,” concluded Skevington.
Designed to meet the community’s growing healthcare needs, the new state-of-the-art ER will operate as a fully integrated department of Parkland Medical Center and will feature:
- Full-service emergency care – the same services offered at hospital-based ERs
- Walk-in entrance and covered ambulance entrance for patient drop-off and pick-up with EMS lounge
- 10 private treatment rooms
- Staffed by emergency medicine physicians, specially trained emergency nurses and support teams
- CT capabilities, digital ultrasound and diagnostic x-rays
- Onsite laboratory
