Centra Southside Community Hospital is a small local hospital with an emergency room that is frequently extremely busy. This hospital is the closest hospital for all or most of Prince Edward, Buckingham, Cumberland, Charlotte, Lunenburg, and Nottoway counties with several others also transporting there. The biggest issue that Southside faces is a need for more beds in the ER but this can be a messy political matter to make happen. Alternatively, a local stand alone ER would be a measure that would allow for there to be more beds and a capability to diagnose and treat medical events who could then either be discharged or transferred to a more appropriate facility. This approach has been used in other localities with great success and would solve the problems seen of an overcrowded emergency room. If a hospital system such as MCV, Bon Secours, or others were to invest in such a facility it would also give patients more of a choice in their care providers.
