What's ER Extra?

A revolutionary ER experience, ER Extra is designed to streamline the ER process of patient diagnosis and treatment, as well as keep the flow of information available to waiting friends and family members.

Extra Fast.
By the time you enter our ER, every minute - every second - seems like forever.  That's why the clock starts ticking the moment your name enters our system at the registration desk.  To deliver the fastest quality care possible, our ER has a computerized tracking system that records every second you spend there.  This data is constantly reviewed by your treatment team to streamline processes and speed up the time it takes to deliver care.  The result is that you see a member of the clinical team sooner, so treatment can begin quicker.

Extra Easy.
Board certified doctors and highly trained staff are by your side throughout your visit.  They are there to explain your diagnosis and how it will be treated, as well as discuss any follow up care you might need.

Extraordinary Care.
The best care results from excellent customer service and friendly staff members.  At CMMC, we are committed to treating you with outstanding care and compassion.

Not only are our patients a high priority, but waiting loved ones are treated with utmost care.
