New full-service ER expands access to healthcare in NW Tallahassee

Capital Regional Medical Center expanded access to emergency care in northwest Leon County today with the opening of Lake Jackson ER, a full-service freestanding emergency department. The $16M reinvestment in the community features 12 private patient beds, including a dedicated trauma room, and created approximately 30 new career opportunities for area healthcare professionals.

Lake Jackson ER is located at 3157 North Monroe Street, near I-10 and offers 24/7 access to a full-range of adult and pediatric care capabilities led by a team of healthcare professionals certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support, and trained in trauma, pediatric emergency and neonatal resuscitation. Lake Jackson ER also features diagnostic imaging including CT scan, ultrasound and X-ray, and laboratory services. Lake Jackson ER is the newest addition of expanded services from Capital Regional and is expected to serve more than 12,000 patients per year. The hospital’s main campus emergency room, Southwood ER and Gadsden ER saw more than 109,000 patients last year.

“We are committed to serving our community and providing quality healthcare,” said Alan Keesee, CEO of Capital Regional Medical Center. “Recognizing a need for emergency services in northwest Tallahassee, our team dedicated resources and planning to address that need. Today, it is an honor to open Lake Jackson ER and increase immediate access to high-quality emergency care to individuals and families in this area.”
