ER features

It is our goal to maintain short average wait times. To ensure we treat anyone at immediate risk first, a triage nurse will promptly evaluate you once you arrive to the ER.

The ERs at Ocala Regional Medical Center and West Marion Community Hospital feature:

  • Dedicated unit and beds for neurological services and treatment
  • Dedicated unit and beds for cardiovascular services and treatment
  • Biplane angiography technology
  • Self check-in kiosks
  • Care Path, a fast track option to reduce time in the ER for patients with less serious injuries and illnesses

Emergency stroke treatment

For our dedication to outstanding stroke care, both the Florida Agency for Health Care Association and DNV-GL Healthcare certified Ocala Regional Medical Center as a Comprehensive Stroke Center, the first and only in Marion County.

By achieving Comprehensive Stroke Center status, the highly trained neurological team at Ocala Regional provides more advanced stroke treatments than primary stroke centers located in Marion, Lake and Sumter counties.

To provide the highest level of stroke care in the region, we offer dedicated neurological units and neuroscience intensive care beds. These units are equipped with advanced technology, such as biplane angiography, which produces 3D views of the brain to help diagnose and treat complex strokes.

Trauma center

As a Level II Trauma Center, Ocala Regional Medical Center treats patients who have sustained wounds or injuries as a result of traumatic events.

We serve Trauma Service Area 6 (made up of Marion, Hernando and Citrus counties). Patients in need of emergency trauma care have immediate access to trauma surgeons, who are on-site at all times.
