St. Vincent in Little Rock Plans $4 Million Emergency Department Expansion

St. Vincent Infirmary Medical Center, Little Rock, Ark., is planning a $4 million expansion of its emergency department. New features will include a "fast track" system to speed up wait times for non-critical care patients. The new, 17,000- square-foot department will be 60 percent bigger than the current department. Construction is expected to be completed by the summer of 2007. For more information, contact Shawn Smith of St. Vincent at ssmith@stvincenthealth.com.
