Twin Cities Hospital Announces ER Expansion at Special Ground Breaking Ceremony
Twin Cities Hospital announced a $6.7 million expansion of its ER at a special ground breaking ceremony, held Wednesday, Jan. 22, at 2 p.m.
The project includes the expansion and renovation of the ER, relocation and replacement of the existing CT, and a small surface parking addition. Currently, the ER is approximately 4,800 square feet and comprised of 8 rooms, with one room serving as a low acuity area with 3 chairs. The proposed project adds approximately 2,650 square feet to the north side of the ER. The new construction will include seven triage and treatment sites. The existing waiting room, triage, and support space will be renovated and reconfigured. The existing 16-slice CT is located on the opposite side of the hospital. The expansion project incorporates relocating and replacing the existing CT within the ER. A small, gravel area adjacent to the ER parking lot will be paved, providing 24 additional parking spaces.
“The newly expanded ER will allow us to deliver the same expert and compassionate care we have always delivered, but in a larger and better configured setting for our patients”, said Dave Whalen, Twin Cities Hospital’s CEO.
