Gannett Emergency Department
In 2001, Strong Memorial Hospital unveiled the region's largest and most modern emergency facility. The 55,000-square-foot Frank and Caroline Gannett Emergency Department is more than three times larger than Strong Memorial Hospital's previous emergency department. It was designed to improve efficiency in a facility that handles more than 75,000 visits per year and has been designated by the New York State Department of Health as a Regional Trauma Center.
Modeled after the Emergency Department at the University of Cincinnati, a medical center that is nationally respected for its emergency and trauma services, the Gannett Emergency Center features distinct treatment areas for adults and children, as well as for those who require urgent care for minor injuries. The adult treatment area was constructed with 25 private patient cubicles surrounding a raised nursing station so that patients are readily visit.
The Frank and Caroline Gannett Emergency Center is located adjacent to the main entrance of Strong Memorial Hospital from Elmwood Avenue, across from the ramp garage.
