No official ER designation yet for Streator, IL facility

From the Times:

Streator’s urgent care center acts as an emergency room, but it has yet to receive that designation.

Official ER status is contingent on a license from the state Department of Public Health.

Until the Streator center gets licensed, patients on Medicare and Medicaid cannot be reimbursed for ambulance trips to the facility, which is part of the OSF Center for Health-Streator, according to Advanced Medical Transport, Streator’s ambulance service.
