JAMESTOWN — Miami Valley Hospital’s Jamestown Emergency Center is celebrating its first full year of providing emergency services to the community on Sunday.
The community is invited to attend a safety fair from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Emergency Center located in the Living Water Professional Building, 4940 Cottonville Road. Activities are planned for the entire family including free health screenings (cholesterol, glucose, blood pressure, hemoglobin A1C) safety demonstrations and informational displays.
Guests will also have an opportunity to get an up-close look at Miami Valley Hospital’s medical helicopter, CareFlight. Several community fire and rescue squads will have equipment on display as well.
Since its grand opening in March of 2013 the center has treated more than 5,000 patients of all ages.
“Providing high quality, life-saving care to the Jamestown community is our mission,” said Dr. Darin Pangalangan, ER physician and medical director for Jamestown and Miami Valley Hospital South’s emergency departments. “The emergency physicians treating patients in Jamestown are highly skilled doctors. They are the same physicians we staff at Miami Valley Hospital’s downtown Dayton campus, one of the busiest ED’s in the state, and at our south hospital in Centerville.”
The facility provides hospital-level emergency services around the clock. It occupies 30,200 square feet of space that includes 10 patient exam rooms, imaging services (CT, X‐ray and ultrasound) and a medical laboratory. Other services in the Living Water Professional Building include physical therapy services, a retail pharmacy and a time-share office where medical specialists can see patients and the offices of Jamestown Family Medicine. This fall cardiac testing will be available this fall.
