New emergency room open
Sacramento Bee

Yvonne Bennett of Corning is the first ambulance patient wheeled into UC Davis Medical Center’s new emergency room Wednesday, under the care of Sacramento City firefighter/paramedic Dave Smith and registered nurse Angie Chavez.

The new ER – twice the size of the former facility – is in the medical center’s Surgery and Emergency Services Pavilion, a $424 million expansion of the hospital campus that modernizes the center’s operations and complies with state seismic mandates.
