Highland Park Emergency Room offers a wide range of services that enable our physicians provide the care you expect and require. These ancillary services include an advanced radiology suite, laboratory services, and a pharmacy licensed by the state. 

Our facility offers a well-stocked pharmacy to provide IV medications such as antibiotics, cardiac antiarrhythmics, blood thinners, pain medications and many others. 

Our state of the art, digital imaging equipment includes common x-rays, CAT scans, and ultrasounds. Board certified radiologists provide official reading of images 24 hours a day. 

Our state of the art 16-slice CAT scan machine enables the physician to evaluate everything from complex fractures, intra-abdominal disease processes, brain abnormalities and heart and lung disorders. Specifically, the following is just a few of the uses of the CAT scan:

  • Abdomen: Kindey stones, appendicitis, diverticulitis, and pancreatitis
  • Head: strokes, aneurysms, subarachnoid hemorrhage and tumors
  • Chest: Pulmonary embolism, pneumonia
  • Fractures: Facial fractures, pelvic fractures, spinal fractures, complex arm and leg fractures

We are able to provide laboratory work-up results usually within 15 minutes. Our laboratory tests help our physicians make accurate diagnoses. 

Some of the laboratory tests that we do include:

  • Complete blood counts (White blood cell count, Hemoglobin, Hematocrit, platelets)
  • functional tests on kidneys, liver, pancreas
  • Cardiac enzymes used to detect heart attacks
  • blood clot markers to help diagnose pulmonary embolism
  • Urinalysis
  • Drug test analysis
  • pregnancy tests
  • Strep/flu/mono/HIV tests

If your condition requires hospitalization, Highland Park Emergency Center will provide you with no hassle, uninterrupted care while transferring you to a nearby inpatient hospital. We will work with your primary physician during this transfer. However, if you do not have a primary care doctor, our team has established relationships with local hospitals and doctors to provide hospital care for you. Should you require hospitalization, you will be directly admitted to a hospital room, bypassing their busy emergency room. We will also arrange, if necessary, the care for an emergency procedure (such as emergent surgery for appendicitis) by contacting the appropriate specialist.
