Newly improved hospital ER ready to be shown off

Posted by wlpo on January 14, 2016

Here’s the rare example of when visiting the emergency room is cause for celebration.

St. Margaret’s Hospital is hosting an open house Thursday night to showcase a 4,200 square foot addition to their existing ER. The new space should be ready for the public starting next week.

Linda Burt is the Vice President of Quality and Community Services for Saint Margaret’s Health. Now that phase one of the $5.5 million project is done, she says efforts will be focused on renovating the current ER.

Burt says once both phases of the project are complete the ER will be able to serve nearly twice the number of patients it could previously. The upgrade will also include new equipment and offer more privacy.
