As members of the Norman Regional Emergency Services Team, Moore Medical Center's Emergency Department is dedicated to working together to provide excellent patient care with quality patient caring. In fact, our present length of stay is less then two hours for treated and released patients.
We will listen to and communicate with our patients, their families, visitors, and each other.
We will do the things we say we will and do them well each time.
We will continuously promote the human spirit of caring and a healthy environment.
Our staff is dedicated to providing patients with excellent and compassionate care, and providing that care as quickly as possible. Moore Medical Center’s Emergency Department staff is both highly-credentialled and encouraged to continue learning about the latest in skills and technology.
What makes Moore Medical Center unique:
Moore Medical Center’s medical director is Lance Williams, MD.
What sets us apart:
What can I expect when I arrive?
Every patient is greeted by a receptionist and a registrar who will enter brief patient information into our treatment process.
A triage nurse will conduct a short assessment in private with each patient. Patients are taken quickly to a treatment room where a physician evaluates and treats each patient appropriately. Our goal is to “expedite” the process of getting each patient to a physician as quickly as possible.
The triage nurse will determine if you have an illness or minor injury that can be treated by our fast track physicians and staff.
What should I bring with me?
How long will I wait?
Average wait times from ‘triage to doctor’ in Moore Medical Center’s ED are very short; usually within 15 to 20 minutes. This is somewhat dependent upon the volume of patients seeking care at the time of your visit. To minimize wait times, we have five teams of physicians and nurses working at our high volume times of the day.
During your visit, wait times for lab, x-ray, and other diagnostic tests will be monitored by your nurse and he or she will keep you informed of the progress.
What if I have to be admitted?
If your condition requires you to be admitted, we will locate an inpatient bed for you as quickly as bed availability allows.
Please remember that patients with severe illnesses and injuries must be treated very quickly. This may mean a severely ill or injured adult or child will be taken to a treatment area ahead of others waiting. We ask for your patience and understanding, and please remember ALL patients will be treated as quickly as possible.
We are in the process of building a new Chest Pain Center Emergency Department at our HealthPlex location. This 10-bed area will be designed to support the new specialty hospital on Interstate 35 and Tecumseh.
