The Emergency Department expansion project includes a new, two-story (plus basement) addition that houses the new Emergency Department on the first floor with 35 stations and support spaces capable of handling volumes of 60,000 visits (28 private rooms, 1 Trauma room, 6 private express care rooms, and 8 private behavioral health rooms).

The addition included an interstitial mechanical space above the Emergency Department and shell space on the second floor for a future Critical Care Unit (CCU) and the basement contains a garage for ED parking. Site work entailed patient parking, ambulance slots as well as a new heli-pad. The Emergency Department opened in 2008 while ongoing renovations occurred on several patient floors within the hospital to create new enhanced patient care environment with more private patient rooms, easier access to supplies with pass-thru server cabinets outside of each room as well as the integration of new technology.

In 2010, the hospital was positioned to proceed with the planning and design of the new state-of-the-art CCU consisting of 12 Critical Care Beds and 12 Intermediate Care Beds in the planned shell space. This new unit, features right-sized patient rooms with a custom headwall design based on input from all caregivers to ensure their needs were met. this unit opened in November of 2011 with subsequent phased renovation for additional, support, offices and twelve private patient rooms in existing space.
