The Bay - $1 Million Emergency Department Expansion Opens

RBMC’s Perth Amboy hospital celebrated the opening of its newly expanded and renovated 3,530 sq. ft. Emergency Department, part of the medical center’s ongoing growth and renewal program, Vision 2011.


“This new expansion is making a tremendous difference in how we serve our community during a medical emergency,” says  Dane Clarke, M.D., FACHPE, medical director of emergency services at RBMC. “In addition to adding new life-saving technologies, we have created a more modern and comfortable facility, improving the environment of care for our patients  and their families and loved ones.”

Ten additional treatment areas, more space for family members and loved ones, new state-of-the art patient monitoring,  “see thru CPR” defibrillator equipment which analyzes a patient's heart rhythm during continuous CPR, and an expanded Fast Track area for less serious emergencies complete the comprehensive expansion.

The new defibrillators may be used in conjunction with RBMC’s Thermosuits, inflatable cocoon-like, non-invasive devices  which reduce body temperature rapidly in patients experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. This constitutes an extremely effective resuscitation bundle, enhancing Emergency Department clinicians’ ability to save lives.

The expansion also includes a dedicated elevator for rapid transfer of patients to patient floors, and to cardiac  catheterization and stroke units. New bedside monitoring equipment standardizes patient data and, in the near future,will  allow caregivers to share 12-lead EKG data with the cardiology department through RBMC’s computer-based Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS).
