Free-standing ER opens in Palm Beach Gardens

PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL (WFLX) - South Florida has a new emergency room without the hospital.

JFK Medical Center, which is based in Atlantis, has opened South Florida's second free-standing ER. The new satellite facility is located in Palm Beach Gardens and is part of a growing trend that allows hospitals to offer patients more choice.

Some people do worry if stand-alone ER's can provide quality care without nearby beds for those who need to be admitted.
