A project three years in the making has resulted in the Methodist Hospital Emergency Department doubling its patient rooms and nearly doubling its square footage. 

The six-phase, $26.7 million renovation and expansion of the Methodist Hospital Emergency Department began in 2019 and marked the first structural renovation to the space since 1995. Finishing touches will be attended to, and staff will begin serving patients in the fully renovated space in February.  

Highlights of the new department include: 

  • A safer environment for mental health patients 
  • A new and enhanced space for victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, human trafficking and elder abuse 
  • Improved access for patients arriving via ambulance and personal vehicles 
  • Improved care and accessibility for individuals who need assistance with transferring, such as bariatric or traumatic brain injury patients 
  • The addition of Fast Track Triage for patients
