The Colony ER Hospital was opened on February 1st, which makes our anniversary the first day of National Patient Recognition Week. As a freestanding ER hospital, we take this to heart and consider our facility’s unique mission to recognize and support all of our patients. With our concierge-level care and state-of-the-art medical technology, The Colony ER Hospital is working every day to connect more with our patients and make a difference in our community’s medical care.
To find out what makes working at The Colony ER Hospital so special and why our patients mean so much to us, our Facility Director, Ira “Bubba” Skirlock, spoke about why he loves working at The Colony ER Hospital. “Patient care is the #1 priority here at The Colony,” Skirlock says. “Our aim is to always make patients feel comfortable, attend to their needs, and make the experience of visiting us as stress free as possible.” Unlike larger hospitals, which face overcrowding, The Colony ER Hospital is an independent facility which can see patients quickly while giving them the personal care they deserve. “We’re able to provide concierge level medicine because we have minimal wait times, experienced staff, and all of our testing is done onsite,” Skirlock explains.
This Patient Recognition Week, The Colony ER Hospital wants to invite all of our patients to be recognized and appreciated. Healthcare is a very personal field where doctors, staff, and patients all deal with the hurdles that families face—from this year’s flu season to your child’s first broken bone. That is why Patient Recognition Week is so important to us and why we are so proud to celebrate our facility’s anniversary with this holiday.
To patients everywhere, The Colony ER Hospital recognizes you, and wants to let you know that your comfort and care if our first priority.
