Memorial Hospital Grows Alongside Our Community
June 03, 2010
As our city grows, so the does the demand for quality health care. To meet those needs, Memorial Hospital is upgrading the Memorial ExpressCare facility! We just started construction on a major addition. We will be adding 4 new treatment rooms, a new triage area, and a new reception area. Over the next 5 months we will be giving the entire ExpressCare center a new look. The total cost of the project is close to $800,000 dollars.
The Memorial ExpressCare facility is part of our emergency department. It currently has nine patient rooms, x-ray and lab capabilities. It is designed to provide patients with a comfortable place to get medical attention for minor ailments or injuries. It is where we send patients who come to the ER that are not suffering from a medical emergency.
This is our second major construction project in at little over a year. In December 2009, we opened our West Tower. It provided an additional 72 beds, a new entrance, lobby and waiting areas.
