On my account, we would do this...

The patient was brought to the surgery department and .....

The patient was brought to the Memorial Hospital Surgery Department and .....

would not capitalize emergency room, unless it was Memorial Hospital Emergency Room.

again, this is just my account...and my opinion

Thank you! (nm)
