Growing to meet the emergency care needs of our community
Memorial University Medical Center’s emergency department and Level 1 trauma center is expanding. Once completed, the new Parker’s Emergency & Trauma Center will have 74 treatment areas, and nearly double our current space, which means we can provide even better emergency care for our patients, families, and friends. Please pardon our progress during construction. And know that our team stands ready to provide excellent emergency care whenever you need it.
The first phase of our new Parker’s Emergency & Trauma Center is officially open. This phase includes a brand new patient care addition and parking lot. The next phase includes a full renovation of the existing space. The entire project will be complete in 2016.

Parker's Emergency & Trauma Center.
The emergency services at Memorial University Medical Center include the only Level 1 trauma center in southeast Georgia. We have more specialists on site in the middle of the night than some hospitals have in the middle of the day. That includes 24-hour intensive care specialists, anesthesiologists, trauma surgeons, and radiologists. Our board-certified emergency physicians handle more than 95,000 cases per year.
Level 1 Trauma Center
Our trauma center is one of only five Level 1 trauma centers in the entire state of Georgia. Being designated Level 1 means that we provide the highest level of emergency care as established by the American College of Surgeons. Our trauma center serves 28 counties in Georgia and South Carolina. It is the only facility of its kind between Jacksonville, Florida, and Charleston, South Carolina.
