ER of Brookside offers the latest technology, a lab and imaging system, pediatric-ready rooms and high-quality care delivered by a compassionate, experienced and dedicated team. ER of Brookside has little or no wait time while achieving high patient experience scores.

Research Medical Center is part of HCA Midwest Health, the Kansas City area’s leading healthcare provider that treats nearly 25,000 kids each year in its hospital and free-standing ERs and beat the national average for pediatric ER readiness.

The grand re-opening event will feature complimentary food as well as buy-your-lunch food truck, bounce houses, music, games, prizes and tours of the new ER of Brookside.

“Research Medical Center and ER of Brookside on the Brookside campus are proud to be a valuable part of the community,” says David Strickland, M.D., ER of Brookside medical director and board-certified emergency medical physician. “This expansion represents our mission that, above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life. It’s an honor to serve patients and their families during a particularly vulnerable time in their lives with high-quality, compassionate healthcare.”
