Good Samaritan Holds Groundbreaking for New Emergency Department

Thanks in part to $2 million anonymous donation, the trauma program at CHI Health Good Samaritan took a highly anticipated step forward on Aug. 27 with a ceremonial groundbreaking for its new emergency department. Construction on the 16,000-square-foot, $13 million expansion is planned for completion in spring 2021. The project won’t change the hospital's footprint, but will use existing facility space, including parts of the current 7,500-square-foot emergency room that was built in 1994. The new, larger space will double the size of Good Samaritan's emergency department and include private exam rooms, additional trauma and procedure rooms, a new entrance and more.
