Coming Soon – The Heart Center
ED and Heart Center progress update, May 12, 2022
On May 5, 2021, we broke ground on our expanded Emergency Department and
new Heart Center. Now, more than a year later, we’re beginning to
see these spaces take shape – walls are built, windows have been
installed, and flooring is currently being laid.
The average number of patients per day seen in our Emergency Department
is far greater than when it was originally built. A new layout of the
facility will create more treatment areas outfitted for a wider variety
of care options, allow for expanded services to treat bariatric patients,
as well as a separate and more fully equipped area for psychiatric patients.
The 1st phase of the new Emergency Department is projected to open later
this summer, and a portion of the new Heart Center to open by early 2023.
We're excited to upgrade our place as the heart of the community!
We’re excited to begin providing updates and information on the newest
additions to our health system. To learn more, keep an eye on our Facebook

projected to open later this summer, and a portion of the new Heart Center
to open by early 2023.
