Already seeing 93,000 visits a year, the busy Kaweah Delta Medical Center ER will expand in two directions, more than doubling beds from the current 32 to 66, says CEO Lindsay Mann. Construction is expected during the next year. The project was one of several phased improvements approved by the board of directors in recent days. First the hospital will add 10 beds adjacent to the emergency department inside the Acequia Wing of the hospital.

Construction is expected during the next year. The project was one of several phased improvements approved by the board of directors in recent days. First the hospital will add 10 beds adjacent to the emergency department inside the Acequia Wing of the hospital. Then they plan to create an additional 24 beds adding new space in the east parking lot, he says. The hospital added a helicopter pad to the building attached to the ER two years ago as part of an upgrade to become a Level One trauma unit.
