Emergency Dept

Photo of the Emergency Department Entrance

The Lenoir Memorial Emergency Department (ED) features a geographical layout that is patient-focused and patient-driven. The design of the area was created to improve the flow of patients and to enhance patient privacy. Upon entering the new ED, patients and visitors first check in at the information desk located just inside the foyer. Security is strategically stationed to the right of the entrance to lend assistance as needed for patients, visitors, and staff.

Beyond the information desk are three private triage areas where nurses perform their initial assessment of patients and route them to the appropriate treatment areas. While in the triage area, the nurse presses a button which alerts registration staff to come to the patient to complete the registration process.

There are 12 private ED treatment rooms including two major trauma rooms. Each room is equipped with new cardiac monitors which are connected to the adjacent nursing station to provide central monitoring of all patients. In addition to the 12 ED rooms are seven Express Care rooms equipped to provide treatment to patients presenting with non life-threatening injuries. Express Care is a fast track for non-emergent patients and routinely provides treatment to patients in 90 minutes or less.

A nourishment area is another feature of the new ED as are sub-waiting areas for physicians to use for family consults and for those times when family members need privacy to grieve the loss of a loved one.

For those accompanying patients to the ED, a spacious waiting area located to the left of the ED information desk should provide all of the amenities a family member needs while waiting to hear about their loved one's condition. Pay phones are located adjacent to the waiting area as are handicapped-accessible restrooms, a vending area, water fountains, and a children's playroom stocked with toys and other fun materials to help pass the wait time for young visitors.

Lenoir Memorial Board votes to pursue strategic partnership with Novant Health

After a yearlong selection process for a strategic partner, the Lenoir Memorial Board of Directors has unanimously voted to pursue a partnership through a management agreement with Novant Health, hospital officials announced today.  The decision follows a thorough search and exploration process led by the board to select a partner who would best position Lenoir Memorial for the future of healthcare and create a stronger health system for the Kinston community.  "For more than a century, Kinston has had a community hospital and the chapter we're beginning today will preserve that legacy of local healthcare for future generations," said Gary Black, president and CEO of Lenoir Memorial.  "Through an affiliation with Novant Health, we will further enhance the services we provide, ensuring that high-quality care remains close to home."  The Lenoir Memorial Board now enters discussions with Novant Health to structure the terms of the partnership, leading to the signing of the management agreement, which the board hopes to finalize this spring.
