St. Rita’s Medical Center in Lima, Ohio will invest approximately $9 million for an Emergency Room expansion which will add 8,000 square feet to the facility.

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.
“Our emergency department is probably one of the oldest facilities from a clinical perspective,” stated Jim Reber, CEO. “We constantly try to freshen it and make it better.”

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. Each will have medication administration equipment for improved patient safety, as well as digital capabilities for electronic medical records and other technology, including full size monitors to view patient imaging (X-rays) and test results.
