Central Carolina Hospital has unveiled plans for a $10.6m renovation and expansion of its emergency department (ED).

The renovation work will involve complete remodelling and reorganisation of the existing 13,500ft2 ED layout.

This will improve patient and staff flow and also reduce the wait times in the ED.

Work on the project also includes renovation of the existing rooms, clinical decision rooms, hallway beds, and fast track area.

This will increase the capacity of the hospital’s ED and allow Central Carolina Hospital to provide care for additional patients who require emergent care. 

Central Carolina Hospital CEO Chris Fensterle said: “It is an exciting time to be part of Sanford as our region continues to grow, and a larger, modern emergency department ensures that Central Carolina Hospital is well positioned to deliver the care our community needs, today and for the future.
