EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT AT THE SOUTHAMPTON HOSPITAL OFFICIALLY OPENS
1/12/2018 11:32:36 AM
The new Emergency Department at the Southampton Hospital opened today.
This is Phase 1 of the project, and includes 12 treatment rooms that will assist in the treatment of the roughly 17,000 patients who visit the Emergency Department annually.
Phase 2 is a 10,000 square foot renovation, which will double the size of the laboratory, and includes space for a new gift shop. Work has already begun, and will be finished later this year.
Both the ER and Lab have been designed to accommodate modern medical equipment, improved patient flow, and enhanced workspace for staff, physicians and volunteers.
The total project will cost approximately $10 million, with the provincial government contributing 90 per cent and the remaining ten per cent coming through the Hospital Foundation from the community.
Bruce Power is the largest contributor at $500,000.
