The project is expected to happen in four different phases.

Phase one includes renovation and expansion of the emergency department, including the unit housing the hospital’s bariatric program. Phase two will include additional emergency department enhancements, plus the development of a new laboratory that will expedite care. That phase is planned for the fall of 2018.

Phase three will include a reimagined imaging suite. Phase four will be the medical village with a wellness area on-site pharmacy and additional emergency department growth and development.

When completed, the emergency department will be 10,000 square feet, with a new entrance and expanded lounge. In addition, three dozen semi-private rooms will be converted to private rooms.
