I got a sneak peek the other day at the new Zoom+ Super emergency medicine clinic in Northeast Portland, and as you'd expect, it doesn't look like your typical ER.
That's because it's not a traditional ER. The clinic is intended for people with an urgent medical issue, but not one that's so life threatening they arrive by ambulance. Anyone suffering from a stroke, heart attack or major trauma needs to call 911 and go to the traditional ER.
"If you're at the traditional ER and they don't take you right back, you belong here," said Dr. Mark Zeitzer, practice leader for Emergency Medicine.
