Standing Together: Urgent care providers join Elliot’s ED staff on the front lines
In the Emergency Department at Elliot Hospital, staff have rallied together to prepare to face a surge in patients needing care.
“Our Elliot ED team is an amazing group of resilient and dedicated healthcare professionals,” says John Leary, Director of Emergency Services. “During this unprecedented crisis, each of them have made the commitment and displayed the courage to care for our community.”
They have prepared by banding together with fellow caregivers. The team has implemented a program, cross-training urgent care staff and credentialing them for work in the Emergency Department. This team-based care model will allow the Elliot’s ED to provide the highest quality care to patients in a high acuity surge setting.

Thank you to our community! We are here, ready to care for you and your loved ones.
