1. Stand-alone emergency rooms emerge in Central Florida
from Orlando Sentinel
From Sept. 3:
When the Hunter's Creek Emergency Room opened on John Young Parkway in June, the people of that burgeoning community suddenly had a center that could treat medical emergencies ranging from heart attacks to broken bones. The off-site hospital emergency department was the second such facility to open in Central Florida in the past year, and two more will open in the next year or so. That puts Orlando in the forefront of a trend of full-service emergency medicine facilities rising miles from hospitals.
