The Emergency Center is the front door to Bristol Hospital – constantly being opened each year by over 40,000 patients. Every one of these patients needs attentive care from quality professionals, in a setting designed to meet their individual needs.

So we’re asking you to help us expand in order to continue
providing the highest-quality care in a state-of-the-art facility.



The Expansion Plan aims to create a more comfortable setting for young patients with a dedicated Pediatric Area – designed just for kids!

Behavioral Health

This expansion is also set to deliver a dedicated Behavioral Health area to support the high level of care and attention that patients need.

State-of-the-Art Facility

A strategic planning team has worked with architects on a full expansion & renovation plan to support the exceptional, world class service that this community needs.

The Bristol Hospital Emergency Center model of patient-focused, attentive care – which boasts one of the country’s shortest wait times – needs to be maintained. Please join us in expanding the already-advanced emergency care our talented group provides.

Each day, Dr. Lim and his colleagues treat patients overdosing on opioids and heroin with the antidote, Narcan. As the opioid epidemic reaches crisis levels, Dr. Lim and the Bristol Hospital Emergency Center are sending home a prescription for a second dose of Narcan to each patient who has been treated with Narcan for an overdose.
