Modesto Bee

Memorial Medical Center of Modesto has expanded its emergency department with a goal of fast-tracking patients with less serious illness while increasing capacity for those with true emergencies.

The 5,300-square-foot expansion almost doubles the seating in the lobby and aims to reduce the time before patients see a doctor. The new facility opens Monday. Walk-in patients will use the former main entrance to the hospital off Coffee Road.
