Satellite Emergency Department

What is a Satellite Emergency Department?

JFK Satellite Emergency Department is an innovative, freestanding, and fully equipped emergency room delivering emergency medical service to adult and pediatric patients in a convenient, neighborhood location. The team is committed to providing qualified, compassionate care with state-of-the-art technology and emergency services to our community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The newly renovated Satellite ED features a critical treatment room, a behavioral health suite, radiology suite and on-site laboratory. Our team works together to provide you with privacy, safety and fast access to a team of specialists trained in emergency medicine.

What will happen if I need to be hospitalized?

After our assessment, diagnosis, and consultation with your physician, we may determine your condition warrants admission to the hospital. JFK Medical Center Satellite Emergency Department, located in Plainfield, NJ has the same capabilities as the JFK Emergency Department in Edison, NJ yet is distinct from an inpatient, traditional hospital. When needed you will be transferred to JFK Medical Center for direct admission.

Where should you go?

It’s important to understand your health care choices before you seek medical care.
