The Californian - Salinas - Kimber Solana

To accommodate more patients and lessen long waiting times, the Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital is unveiling its expanded emergency room today. The completion of the project adds about 4,000 square feet to the Tynan Emergency Center. It brings the bed count from 14 to 23, said SVMH spokeswoman Adrienne Laurent. “Our ER was just really small, really cramped and there were long waits,” Laurent said Monday.
