Difference Between Freestanding ER and Hospital ER

Freestanding Emergency Rooms (FSER) and Hospital Emergency Rooms (HER) are two distinct healthcare settings that provide emergency medical care to patients. Although both types of emergency rooms have similar objectives, they differ in several factors including:

  • Ownership
  • Location
  • Staffing
  • Services offered.

Emergency Room Location

A freestanding ER is a separate facility from a hospital, often located in areas with little to no access to a hospital emergency department. Due to their locations they can provide quicker access to emergency medical care for patients in rural areas or areas that are far from a hospital.

A hospital ER is located within a hospital, often serving as the primary emergency department for the hospital and are often location in urban areas.


A Freestanding ER is typically owned and operated by private entities or physician groups. As a result of their ownership, FSERs have more flexibility in their operations and can offer specialized services to their patients and may be more likely to offer extended hours of operation, on-site laboratory and imaging services, and specialized emergency medical care.

A Hospital ER is owned and operated by a hospital and may have a broader range of medical specialties and resources due to their affiliation with a hospital.

Medical Staffing

The staff at a Freestanding ER may be smaller than a Hospital ER, with a focus on emergency physicians and nurses. Due to limited staffing, FSERs may have fewer resources to handle complicated medical cases.

A Hospital ER has a more extensive staff, including emergency physicians, nurses, and specialists such as neurologists, trauma surgeons, and cardiologists on hand to diagnose and treat patients with complex medical conditions.

Medical Services Offered

While both types of emergency rooms provide emergency medical care, they may have different capabilities and services available."

FSERs typically offer basic emergency medical care, such as treatment for minor injuries, chest pain, and respiratory issues. They may also offer on-site laboratory and imaging services, such as X-rays, CT scans, and ultrasounds, to diagnose and treat medical conditions.

HERs may offer a more extensive range of services due to their affiliation with a hospital. They may have specialized resources, such as a trauma center, burn center, or stroke center, to provide emergency care for patients with complex medical conditions. Additionally, they may offer a broader range of diagnostic and treatment options, such as surgeries, specialized imaging tests, and medication management.
