Parkridge Health System proudly announces the opening of Parkridge North ER on Monday, Oct. 5, at 7 a.m. The new emergency room is at 7402 Lee Hwy., between the Shallowford Road and Bonny Oaks Drive exits off I-75.

Parkridge North offers more convenient access to emergency services to communities in the northeastern part of Chattanooga. The facility will provide emergency medical services to patients of all ages.

“We’re excited to introduce a new option for emergency medical care to our community,” said Tom Ozburn, president and CEO of Parkridge Health System. “Parkridge North is the cornerstone for our future growth in Chattanooga’s northeast corridor, and we are looking forward to expanding access to a wider array of medical services in the rapidly growing area that includes Ooltewah, Collegedale, Apison, East Brainerd and Tyner.”

The 12,000 square-foot ER features routine patient rooms as well as rooms designed specifically for bariatrics, behavioral health, decontamination and isolation, pelvic exams, and trauma and resuscitation. Parkridge North will be staffed 24/7/365 by physicians, nurses, technicians and ancillary staff.

A wide array of diagnostic capabilities and support services – including CT and diagnostic X-ray, which are also available as outpatient services; on-site laboratory; pharmacy oversight; and radiology support – will bolster the top-quality care provided at the Parkridge North ER.

The new ER is the first phase of a broader vision for Parkridge North. The second phase will include a medical office building that will house medical specialty offices.

Voting Lines Are Too Long - And Response
