YORKVILLE – On Monday, April 16, the new Rush-Copley Emergency Center – Yorkville opened. The facility is the first center of its kind in Kendall County and will bring quality emergency care closer to home for thousands of area residents.
“We are proud and privileged to serve the healthcare needs of Kendall County with our new emergency center,” said Barry C. Finn, president and CEO. “As the leading medical care provider to this community, Rush-Copley is committed to providing quality care that residents can depend on now and into the future.”
Rush-Copley Emergency Center staff includes certified emergency physicians and emergency-trained nurses who offer the expertise and personal attention patients appreciate. The more than 6,000-square foot emergency center has three treatment rooms and a procedure room.
The center features comprehensive diagnostic services including X-ray, MRI, CT, ultrasound, laboratory services and occupational health.
The emergency center delivers treatment 24/7 and, if further attention for hospital-based care is indicated, an on-site ambulance is available for transport.
Rush-Copley Emergency Center will accept ambulances for basic life support emergencies and offers treatment for a variety of illnesses and injuries including broken bones, asthma attacks, deep cuts and other conditions requiring emergency care.
“As a local emergency center, we can keep emergency patients here for more evaluation and testing without immediately sending them on to a hospital,” said Chris Hwang, M.D., medical director of emergency services at Rush-Copley.
“Patients will be able to get the care they need, and in many instances, will be able to leave sooner and be closer to home.”
