COLUMBUS, Ga (WRBL)- Penne Allison, Director of Emergency Services at St. Francis Hospital visits “News 3 Midday” to talk to Greg Loyd about the services an emergency room offers patients. In addition, she gives advice for people thinking about an ER visit versus a trip to the walk-in clinic or doctor.
