The wait is over, but only early risers were there for the official opening of Feather River Hospital’s new emergency department Tuesday morning. At 5 a.m., the emergency department officially opened and at 5:05 a.m. staff saw their first patient, who was moved from the old ER, which was officially closed at 7 a.m. the same day. “Our (old emergency department) had been licensed for seven beds,” said FRH Assistant Vice President Maureen Wisener.
