John ColontrelleJohn Colontrelle felt a "pop" in his chest during his regular workout one morning. He thought that he had pulled a muscle. He hadn't. What John experienced was an aortic dissection, a very serious and rare condition, especially for a healthy, active 31-year-old. Fortunately, John came to Indian River Medical Center "just to have it checked out-to be safe." That visit saved his life. John's story>

IRMC Rolls Out the Welcome Mat for Surgical Patients

irmc new surgical entranceIRMC is making changes to better meet the needs of our surgical patients and their families. We are now using the North Entrance Elevator, adjacent to the Cafeteria for the Outpatient Surgery Entrance and Exit and for the AM Admit Surgical patient entrance. This change allows for convenient parking, a "drop off" spot and a much shorter walk for patients and their families.

Highlights include:

- Dedicated parking.
- Entrance just steps away from parking.
- Dedicated registration center to reduce registration/wait times.
Directional signs leading patients to the dedicated parking area for the day of surgery and new Outpatient Surgery entrance. Parking will be allocated using ‘hang-tag' permits for the day of the patient's surgery.

We believe these changes improve access to the great outpatient surgery provided by our physicians and staff. We will continue to monitor our environment to identify opportunities to improve services to IRMC physicians and their patients.
