Fremont Area Medical Center (FAMC) boasts technology most think only available in larger metropolitan areas, with uniquely personal care delivered by staff members who are dedicated to their patients, friends, family and neighbors. The area is fortunate to have a very strong and progressive medical community delivering the highest-quality care accessible to individuals in Fremont and the surrounding communities.
FAMC is a 90-bed acute care and 112-bed long-term care nonprofit healthcare facility with over 800 employees and nearly 200 volunteers. More than 80 physicians, practicing in 25 different specialties, are on the active medical staff.
FAMC has a longstanding tradition of excellent care and award-winning programs and services. The medical center was recently ranked in the top five percent among all U.S. hospitals for patient safety and it consistently ranks in the top 25 percent nationally in patient satisfaction scores.
Around-the-clock, 24-hour care is provided by FAMC’s Emergency Department. The average door-to-physician time is significantly below the national benchmark, and when needed, area ambulances and medical helicopters can transport patients to nearby trauma or burn centers at a moment's notice.
When it comes to a heart attack, quick action is key. FAMC’s Cardiac Catheterization Lab provides sophisticated diagnostic and interventional treatment of cardiac and peripheral vascular diseases. Statistically, only 25 percent of hospitals in the U.S. offer primary angioplasty, which means 75 percent of hospitals do not offer the services available at FAMC. That’s good news for residents and visitors to the area.
FAMC also offers the latest in robotic-assisted surgery – the most up-to-date technology that makes surgical intervention less invasive for the patient. FAMC is fortunate to have some of the Midwest’s most experienced surgeons performing urologic and gynecologic procedures with the daVinci. The result is less pain, quicker recovery time and a shorter hospital stay.
FAMC is also part of an effort in the Fremont medical community to incorporate an integrated electronic medical record system. This sharing of critical, timely medical information between the medical community – securely and efficiently – is the future of healthcare in the U.S. and will result in improved efficiency, quality of care and patient safety.
Meticulously maintained and continuously updated, FAMC is a unique combination of technological sophistication and a warm, friendly “hometown” atmosphere. Providing advanced medicine, closer to you.
