Position Description

Facility Overview:
First floor: Emergency room, rehabilitation and Healthy Life Center
The first floor of *** - Coconut Point will feature the 24-hour emergency room, a surgery center, imaging services, a breast health center with 2D and 3D mammography, cardiac testing, rehabilitation services and the Healthy Life Center, which is transferring from nearby Coconut Point mall.

The emergency department provides 16 exam rooms and nine short-stay observation rooms for patients who need additional care.

Webcam systems in exam rooms can be used for patient assessments from inside *** - Coconut Point and anywhere in the *** system.

Transit ambulances transport patients who need hospital care from the Estero ER to other *** locations.

Rehabilitation therapy at the northeast end of the medical complex showcases advanced equipment for patients.

A system called “ZeroG” helps people who may be high-fall risks with walking and balance.

Patients can be harnessed to a pulley system attached to a track on the ceiling and that can hold up to 400 pounds. The system prevents patients from falling and minimizes the number of therapists needed to help someone who may be a fall risk.

The rehabilitation services area includes a virtual reality machine to test stability and an anti-gravity treadmill called “AlterG” that can help patients alleviate pain while in motion.
