Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point in Tampa, Florida, recently opened its new emergency department expansion. The opening is part of a multi-phased, $18.4 million modernization and expansion project that is expected to finish by October 2022.

When complete, the updated emergency department will double the number of treatment areas from 17 to 34, add eight exam rooms,and increase the waiting room area to seat 25 patients and visitors. All systems and equipment also are being upgraded for energy efficiency and reflect current design trends in healthcare.

"We are excited to see the first phase of this project completed,” says Gina Temple, CEO of Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point. “With this part of the emergency department now open, we’ve been able to expand the waiting room area for our patients while also upgrading our exam rooms to provide a higher level of care for anyone who walks through our doors."

In addition to opening this part of the expanded emergency department, Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point also has removed the outdoor tent that has temporarily served as a place to help triage patients.
