Preparations are underway for the much anticipated Emergency Department expansion to begin on or around January 2014.
The additional space will bring our 24-bed facility up to 36 beds as well as add two more trauma beds. According to Kip Cummins, Senior Director, Support Services, the current ED, which opened in 1974, treated approximately 40 patients per day. Today's patient load has outgrown our current facility which serves about 55,000 visit annually. The new trauma beds will also feature new state-of-the-art technology.
