Crestwood breaks ground for emergency department in Harvest

HARVEST — Answering a call to serve residents in the Harvest area, Crestwood Medical Center is building a free-standing emergency department.

The 11,100 square-foot facility will provide emergency and medical service to residents in Harvest and the surrounding communities of Toney, Bobo and Ardmore; as well as northwestern Madison County, northeastern Limestone County, and southern Tennessee, Crestwood said.

At the corner of Alabama 53 and Burwell Road, the full-service facility will treat patients with illnesses and injuries that require a higher level of care than urgent care facilities offer.

The department will feature 10 private patient rooms including a specialized trauma room; decontamination/isolation room; a helipad; and lab and blood bank services. They will have several imaging services available as well including a CT scanner, ultrasound, and x-ray.

Services will be available 24/7 to patients who experience medical emergencies. If a higher level of care or hospital admission is required, officials said the Harvest ED will work with Emergency Management Services to transfer patients to the main Crestwood campus.

The new facility expects to open in early 2024. Approximately 40 jobs will be created  including registered nurses, laboratory & imaging technicians, respiratory therapists, and support staff.

Crestwood has partnered with Wold Architects and Engineers and Doster Construction on this project.
