The Emergency Department at Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital provides a full range of emergency medical services to people of all ages from Erie and Niagara counties. As a result of the hospital's $64 million expansion in 2008, the department nearly tripled in size and features all private patient rooms with phones and flat screen TVs, additional trauma rooms, a more spacious and comfortable waiting room, and new, state-of-the-art technology.
The Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital Emergency Department (ED) Offers:
- Board certified emergency medicine physicians and specially trained nurses who provide comprehensive care to more than 40,000 patients of all ages each year.
- Fast Track - an area within the ED between the hours of 1 p.m. and 1 a.m. where patients with less severe injuries and illnesses are treated. Fast track has helped reduce the congestion within the ED at peak times.

Millard Fillmore Suburban has taken the next step in emergency preparedness by providing a dedicated decontamination room adjacent to the emergency room.
This state-of-the-art decontamination room has multiple areas to accommodate a large number of people. It can also accommodate non-ambulatory patients on stretchers. In the event of a large incident the facility has a large inflatable decontamination tent that could assist hundreds of people if necessary.
Why is this important? If exposed to hazardous materials:
- Individuals will need to remove and package all clothing due to potential exposure.
- Be decontaminated via showering.
- Be free of the hazardous agent prior to treatment in the ED.
Decontamination can be used for any hazardous material exposure that leaves a substance on the victim. Some common examples are chlorine, pesticides and oils.
- Chlorine -the most common household and industrial cleaner in the world. If a person gets this on their skin, it can cause burns and serious respiratory distress if inhaled.
- Pesticides- commonly used in the agricultural industry as well as around homes. In low doses, it can be a skin/eye irritant, it could affect a person's nervous system at high doses and some are considered carcinogenic.
- Oil, including gasoline, is the most common hazardous material in the world. Oil can also be a skin irritant and very harmful if ingested.
More complex contaminants include nerve agents or cyanide exposure.
