Brandon Regional Hospital opened the doors for its Emergency Center at Plant City on Oct. 4 with a Greater Plant City Chamber of Commerce ribbon-cutting ceremony before a reported crowd of more than 100 people.
"The Emergency Center at Plant City now offers residents the experience of a facility that treats 100,000 patients per year, close to their home," notes a Brandon Regional Hospital news release about the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
An open house for the center was scheduled for Sept. 22, a time for residents to see firsthand the new 11,000- sqaure-foot facility set to open near the Aldi Supermarket on the south side of Plant City, at 3065 James L. Redman Parkway.
According to hospital officials, the emergency center will commit to minimize wait times and be staffed by board-certified emergency medicine physicians and registered nurses. The center will offer a "complete array of emergency center services" and provide "access to all specialty services offered at Brandon Regional Hospital."
As with the Brandon emergency center, emergency wait times will be posted. Patients can text ER to 23000 or go to BrandonRegionalHospital.com.
