Kenmore Mercy Hospital in New York, US, has started the construction of a $14m emergency department, which is scheduled to open in 2013.

The 24,000ft² facility will include 25 private treatment rooms fitted out with medical emergency and clinical information technology, such as on-site computed tomography (CT) and digital radiology equipment.

Kenmore Mercy Hospital president and CEO James Millard said the new emergency department will allow the hospital to provide the most advanced care for life-threatening medical emergencies.

"Now is the time to turn the page on a new chapter in our history and bring the same high quality emergency care to our patients in a more modern, spacious and comfortable facility," said Millard.

The new emergency department will help centrally located nurse stations and consultation areas to advance care and improve the work environment for hospital staff.

Kenmore Mercy’s Emergency Department medical director Raquel Martin said: "These new enhancements will greatly improve patient flow, reduce waiting times, and provide more efficient and effective emergency services to help save lives."

The new emergency department, which is expected to offer an improved efficiency and privacy for patients, will expand the current facility by 11,500ft².

The expanded facility will provide private registration and triage rooms, a bariatric room, a super-track unit and a decontamination room.
