I have two young children so it’s important for me to know the closest and fastest way to the hospital. Luckily we haven’t had to make a trip to the emergency room but I’ve read many accounts from friends and other mommies to know that time could come at any moment.
So I was thrilled to learn about the new WakeMed ER at Brier Creek. It’s back off ACC Boulevard near Kohl’s. The Healthplex is a 50,000 square foot facility, featuring a 24/7 stand-alone emergency department, diagnostic imaging, laboratory services and physicians offices,including Wake Orthopaedics.
Before the Healthplex opened, I always contemplated between Rex and WakeMed North, but now I don’t have to worry. It’s literally a 5 minute drive up the road. AND you can download WakeMed’s app on your smartphone and find ER waiting times. Totally cool.
The Brier Creek Healthplex is WakeMed’s third 24/7 full-service, stand-alone emergency department and has 12 private treatment rooms. AllWakeMed emergency departments are staffed by the same group of board-certified physicians,and all offer access to laboratory and imaging services, including CT and X-ray for bothemergency department patients and outpatient visits.
