Washington University emergency medicine physicians are now providing medical care in the recently renovated Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital Emergency Department, which was designed to decrease patient wait times to a minimum.
Randall A. Howell, DO, is medical director of the Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital Emergency Department. “Our 11 emergency medicine physicians are board-certified and maintain the highest standards in emergency care,” he says.
A new cardiac monitoring unit also recently opened at the hospital, which expands the scope of patients able to be treated in the Emergency Department. This means patients with chest pain can be evaluated in the Emergency Department and admitted for monitoring, if necessary.
