The GRMC emergency department takes further shape in Hard Hat Report #7.
Brian Cline, facilities management, indicated in Hard Hat Report #6 that dry wall installation wouldn’t be further delayed and would likely be installed by Hard Hat Report #7. You can see the evidence of this, as well as improvements to other areas, in the video
(link below).

During the construction phase, the emergency department will be temporarily located on the second floor of the medical center, in the Sidd Potts Patient Care wing (east wing).

 This relocation requires some changes to the emergency care entrance and parking logistics. The temporary emergency room entrance is now located at the corner of Reed Street and Fourth Avenue. GRMC has designated parking for ER patients in the lot near this entrance. GRMC recognizes these changes can be challenging for patients. To avoid confusion or frustration, security staff will be located near the emergency room entrance at all times to help guide our patients to the correct space. Additionally, there are red footsteps leading directly from the entrance to the temporary ER space.

 GRMC ensures that operations will not be interrupted and will continue to run smoothly. We are thrilled to share this space with you upon completion. To view the current state of the emergency department, nearly three months into renovations, please visit our Hard Hat Report #7.
