Visits to OCMMC’s Emergency Department (ED) have grown by more than 21 percent in the past five years and its ED treats more than 35,000 people each year. To ensure it continues to provide advanced, life-saving care to those whose lives depend on it, OCMMC is embarking on a major expansion of its Emergency Department. The Emergency Pavilion will be twice the size of its current facility which will enable OCMMC to double its capacity, enhance patient privacy and ensure the prompt delivery of high quality medical care.

The new Emergency Pavilion will provide OCMMC’s served communities with the following amenities:  

  • An additional 4,980 square feet of space, for a total of 11,400 square feet
  • 27 treatment areas including 13 private treatment rooms, with one exclusively for children
  • 5 “fast track” stations for rapid medical evaluations
  • Bedside registration
  • Separate entrances for ambulances and walk-in patients
  • Enhanced space for physician consultations
  • A chapel and healing garden
  • A designated paramedic area
