Saint Francis Medical Center welcomes Sara Elizabeth Nowicki, DO, as a new Medical Partner and emergency medicine physician. Nowicki joins 14 other emergency medicine physicians at Saint Francis’ Emergency and Trauma Center, the region’s only state-designated Level III Trauma Center.
Nowicki earned her medical degree from A.T. Still University, Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kirksville, Mo. She then completed her emergency medicine residency at Grandview Medical Center OUCOM in Dayton, Ohio. Nowicki enjoys caring for people of all ages, with different conditions and backgrounds, and also understands the importance of educating her patients as she cares for them. Because of her academic trauma center background, Nowicki also has a clinical interest in trauma care.
The Emergency and Trauma Center at Saint Francis Medical Center is the region’s only state-designated Level III Trauma Center. Recently expanding in both physical size and the number of physicians, this state-of-the art facility offers 26 private treatment rooms, all with direct access to bathrooms, as well as three trauma rooms, two triage rooms and a special procedures room. Patients at the Emergency and Trauma Center have direct access to the Medical Center’s certified Chest Pain Center (for immediate response to patients having a heart attack) and the Medical Center’s accredited Stroke Center (for patients having a stroke-related emergency). Patients also have access to the Medical Center’s advanced medical technology, including a 64-slice CT scanner, the latest X-ray equipment and other new technology.
