The department was constructed in 1980 and was last updated in 1995. The renovation will include additional and larger rooms available 24/7 with “family zones,” CarePath technology, behavioral health safe rooms, and a meditation and grieving area.
According to St. Rita’s, the emergency room treats approximately 60,000 patients a year and the expansion will increase patient capacity by 15%. The 46 universal rooms will be 50% larger than the current rooms.
