Advanced training and technology help Leesburg Regional Medical Center (LRMC) treat emergency patients with the highest level of quality-care possible. Our emergency department provides local residents with a dedicated emergency care team that includes board-certified emergency medicine physicians and specially trained emergency nurses. Patients seeking care at LRMC have access to advanced life support, intensive care capabilities, and a wide range of doctors and clinicians specially trained in areas such as pediatrics, cardiology and anesthesia.
LRMC is designated as a Primary Stroke Center by the Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration. This designation means that our emergency team meets the criteria required to provide a high level of stroke care to patients. As a Primary Stroke Center, our hospital has the resources and ability to administer tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), a clot-busting drug used for stroke patents who arrive at the emergency department within a 3-hour window from the onset of symptoms.
