A new, freestanding emergency room that offers care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, opened on Sept. 29 as part of the HCA Florida Ocala Hospital.

The new state-of-the-art facility, HCA Florida Silver Springs Emergency, at 3741 E Silver Springs Blvd., spans 11,000 square feet and provides full emergency medical services for children and adults.

“As the Marion County community expands, the need for 24/7 emergency care close to where people live and work is paramount,” said HCA Florida Ocala Hospital CEO Alan Keesee in a press release. “We are excited to establish a new health care location for all in need of emergency medical care.”

The facility will have 11 private treatment rooms, an on-site laboratory, ultrasound, CT and X-ray scanning technology.
