Mercy Hospital will open a new emergency room in Perrysburg, but this one is unique.

It will be the first free-standing ER in the city. The facility will feature a helipad for emergency helicopter landings and 30-40 staff members capable of treating heart attacks, strokes and pediatric emergencies.

The 15,000-square-foot building will be open 24 hours a day and is located on Route 25 near I-475. Mercy officials say they wanted to bring comprehensive care south of Toledo because of the growing population in the area.

"Just to have immediate care for your heart attacks, your strokes, you want to get to the closest facility," said Renee Davis, manager of Mercy ER Perrysburg.

Officials say the population in the area has grown 20 percent in recent years and they believe the facility will help cater to the urgent needs of neighbors.

An open house is scheduled for Nov. 3 from 2-4 p.m.
