OSF Saint James Emergency Department Enhancements

2/13/2014 - Pontiac, Illinois

Recent enhancements to the OSF Saint James – John W. Albrecht Medical Center Emergency Department waiting and check-in areas include significant changes to its comfort and security features, aimed at improving both public and staff privacy and safety.  

A public restroom and vending machines have been added the waiting area, making it unnecessary to leave the department to access these services.

Effectively immediately, the Emergency Department is now a restricted area, and cannot be used for non-emergent access to other parts of the medical center between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. Non-Emergency Department patients and visitors who park outside the emergency entrance and attempt to enter the hospital this way will be asked to relocate their vehicle to the east lot and use the main (east) medical center entrance.
