Good Samaritan Hospital To Expand And Renovate Emergency Department

Good Samaritan Hospital in San Jose is planning an overhaul of its emergency department. The hospital will shell out $33 million to both renovate and increase the size of the emergency department. Hospital officials say the extra room will allow the department to hold 34 beds, and they project that will allow 21,000 more patients to be seen per year. An updated ambulance bay and a dedicated CT scanner are among the other planned improvements. Construction will start in the fall of 2015, and is expected to take about two years.
