McLaren Fenton 24/7 Emergency Center Now Open

McLaren Fenton, McLaren’s newest 24/7 emergency center located at 2420 Owen Road, is now open. Staff began seeing patients at the facility on Monday, March 16. The opening is actually the completion of the second phase of a major makeover that will change health care for southern Genesee and northern Livingston County residents.

The emergency center has 22 private rooms, including three resuscitation rooms, an isolation room and one specialized room for patients experiencing a mental health emergency. It houses telestroke technology, a CT scanner, X-ray machine, ultrasound room, and capabilities for emergency center laboratory services. Phase one of construction was completed in fall 2019, which included renovation of one-half of the building to update the office space for several physician practices. These practices include family and internal medicine, and OB/GYN services, as well as the addition of imaging capabilities, including 3-D mammography, bone density and a lab drawing station.

McLaren Fenton is staffed 24/7 with board-certified emergency physicians, along with emergency room nurses and support personnel who will see patients within 30 minutes. Patients meeting certain criteria will be transported to the Fenton facility by ambulance. Those requiring admission or observation will be transferred to McLaren Flint for inpatient care.

Online check-in is also offered to reduce patient wait times. This scheduling system lets patients with non-life-threatening or debilitating conditions select an arrival time and stay at home until their treatment time arrives.
