The Northwest Emergency Center continues to be busier than we expected and the staff is excited to be providing care for residents of Vail, Rita Ranch, Corona de Tucson and surrounding areas. Our average door-to-doctor time for January was 11 minutes and we’re seeing an average of more than 40 patients per day; that number continues to grow especially now that the flu has hit Tucson.

We’re adding additional nursing staff to accommodate the increase in patients. We have seen a wide range of patients at Northwest Emergency Center who have everything from the flu, to concussions to life-threatening cardiac conditions.

The community has given us a warm welcome and we are happy to be able to offer healthcare close to home for the residents in this area.
