The Emergency Department is 75 percent larger than its previous facility and able to accommodate the community’s projected population growth for many years to come.
The new Emergency Department in the Patient Care Tower includes 46 private treatment rooms, a separate entrance for public and ambulance drop off, triage and diagnostic services.
The new entrances for the emergency department will limit congestion for both public and ambulance arrivals. The ambulance entrance will be large enough to accommodate six ambulances at any given time. The public entrance allows for a friend or family member to drop off a patient and easily park their car in the new parking structure adjacent to the ED.
