New Milestone for Epworth Geelong Emergency Department
At 9.20am on 23 August, Epworth Geelong Emergency Department saw its 500th patient since opening on 4 July.
“Since seeing our first patient literally as we opened our doors, patients with broken bones, suspected heart attacks, concussion, and many other ailments and conditions have opted to come to the new ED in Waurn Ponds”, said Dr Matt Ryan, Director of Emergency Medicine at Epworth Geelong.
“One of the great advantages we have is that we can provide all diagnostics and imaging in-house. This means that when a patient comes in to our Emergency Department, we can do all necessary testing straight away, and confirm or eliminate suspected conditions. We find that patients appreciate this. We also have on-call specialists and surgeons that can be called upon if required.
