Premier Nursing News     March 2018

A groundbreaking ceremony was held on December 18 in recognition of Premier Health’s new freestanding emergency center in Miamisburg. Miami Valley Hospital Austin Boulevard Emergency Center will provide fully equipped, full-service, 24-hour emergency care with easy access from I-75.

"We are looking forward to serving Miamisburg and surrounding communities with high quality emergency care and access to the region's only Level I trauma center at Miami Valley Hospital," said Mary Boosalis, president and CEO, Premier Health. "The optimal health of those in our community is at the center of everything we do, and we remain committed to providing access to emergency and preventive care to patients when they need it, where they need it."

"The same experienced emergency team that staffs all Miami Valley Hospital emergency departments will be supported at the new emergency center with advanced equipment and an integrated connection to all specialty services provided within the Premier Health system,” said Darin Pangalangan, MD, chair of the Premier Health Emergency Trauma Institute. The new emergency center will provide a rapid access point for those times when every minute counts.

Miami Valley Hospital Austin Boulevard Emergency Center will have 11 emergency beds, including two trauma bays. The emergency center will be staffed by board-certified emergency medicine physicians from Miami Valley Hospital, and will link to Premier Health’s TeleStroke Network to connect stroke specialists via computer to providers at the point of care. Imaging technology will include CT scans and X-ray. Lab services will also be provided, as well as CareFlight Air and Mobile Services to transport patients who need hospitalization. 

The new emergency center is expected to open to the community in September, 2018.
