Adult Emergency Department / Trauma Center
The UF Health Adult Emergency Department (ED) is located on the first floor of the South Tower/UF Health Cancer Center at the corner of SW Archer Road and SW 16th Avenue. Our spacious, modern ED was opened in 2009, and consists of 70 patient care beds. We see close to 200 patients per day, with over 30% arriving by ground or air ambulance. As a major referral center capable of providing the most advanced medical care, our patients not only come from local surrounding communities and counties, but also from throughout the State of Florida, South Georgia, and Southeast Alabama. Board-Certified Emergency Physicians, Emergency Medicine Residents, and Advanced Practice Providers trained in Emergency Medicine staff the ED 24 hours per day, along with a vast team of Emergency Nurses, Critical Care Technicians, and Ancillary Staff.
Located within the core of the Adult ED is a highly sophisticated trauma/resuscitation unit. As a Level 1 Trauma Center, we care for the most critically injured patients in North Central Florida in conjunction with a world-class Trauma/Burn Surgery team. In addition, our certifications as a Comprehensive Stroke Center and as an Accredited Chest Pain Center demonstrate our commitment to patient care excellence. Patients with these and other critical care needs have rapid access to teams of nationally and internationally renowned specialty physicians.
While excellent patient care is our primary mission, our Emergency Department with its vast patient population and superb team of physicians and nursing staff is also proud to be on the cutting edge for Emergency Medicine education and research.
