St. Mary's Sun Prairie Emergency Center plans open house (

There will be an open house from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday at St. Mary’s Sun Prairie Emergency Center, which will open July 1. The 24-hour center, with 10 treatment rooms and a helipad, is on 17 acres at Highway 151 and Reiner Road. It cost $7.9 million to build the center and $4.2 million to buy the land.

SSM Health Care, which owns the center, also owns St. Mary’s Hospital in Madison. Plans eventually call for a “health-care campus,” which may include an inpatient hospital, at the Sun Prairie site.

Those words describe the results of changes happening within St. Mary’s Emergency Services – all for the benefit of our community.The capacity of the downtown Madison facility at St. Mary’s Hospital has nearly doubled since 2005. Now with 29 private exam rooms and a rooftop helipad that’s linked by elevator directly to the ER, the hospital’s emergency room sees more than 36,000 patients a year. Bedside registration and testing, an electronic health record, medical imaging capabilities right in the unit and other efficiencies will make your visit as comprehensive and quick as possible so you can get back on your feet.

Those same features and services will be provided to residents of the Sun Prairie area starting in July, when a 10-bed satellite emergency center opens at the intersection of Highway 151 and Reiner Road. The center, complete with laboratory, medical imaging and helicopter transport, brings quality care closer to home for thousands. The facility will be staffed by Madison Emergency Physicians, the area's only team whose physicians are all board-certified/prepared in emergency medicine. Nursing staff in the ER are specially trained and experienced in advanced life support for both adult and pediatric patients.
