ETMC ER Expansion

In and out in about an hour. That how long ETMC hopes your stay will be at their ER now that their expansion is complete.

The ETMC emergency center expansion opened this morning. The 2.7 million dollar project adds 12 exam rooms, a nurses station, an x-ray area and a larger waiting room.

ETMC says the new facility will not only cut your wait time, but make your stay nicer.

"All the rooms have windows, we have tv's in the rooms. We feel it will make time pass faster for the patients," said Jim Parisi, VP of Emergency/Trauma Services.

Last year more than 45 thousand people came to ETMC's ER. Their average time in the ER was just under three hours.
