Our Outpatient Services Center is home to the Emergency, Radiology and Surgery departments and is designed to “bring the best” to the thousands of people who rely on our hospital for medical care each year. To improve the convenience of care for our outpatients, who account for more than 70 percent of the services we provide, the center is a single-story building with close parking and no stairs or elevators.
Visitors can quickly reach the center from a direct connection between the hospital and Route 29. The extension of Wilson Street provides safe, convenient access to the hospital for emergency vehicles as well as patients and visitors.
The employees in our Emergency Department (ED) are highly trained healthcare professionals ready to provide you with prompt, professional treatment 24 hours a day. With our stroke-ready designation, we have the processes and technology in place to promptly diagnose and treat stroke patients with lifesaving measures prior to sending to a Comprehensive Stroke Center such as Memorial Hospital in Springfield. Our team has extensive training in treating major and minor emergencies, and is certified in advanced cardiac life support, pediatric advanced life support and advanced trauma life support.
The Radiology Department provides expanded access to state-of-the-art imagining technology. While general x-rays of the chest, abdomen and extremities are the most common procedures performed, TMH has seen significant growth in specialized imaging. The Radiology Department houses CT, MRI, 3D mammography, echocardiography, ultrasound/sonography and nuclear medicine – all critically important clinical procedures available right here at Taylorville Memorial Hospital.
Approximately 85% of surgeries performed at TMH enable the patient to return home the same day and our surgery suites are designed to provide an outpatient surgical experience second to none.
Of the three operating rooms, the larger two are identical in size and design and can be used interchangeably to allow our surgeons flexibility in meeting patients’ needs. The third is slightly smaller and was designed with gastrointestinal procedures in mind, though it can be used for other minor surgical procedures.
After their procedures, patients are taken to one of five large recovery bays, each directly visible from the nurses’ station.
