If you live in the North County, your emergency room wait times are about to get much shorter.

Scripps Encinitas celebrated the grand opening of its new emergency department and in-patient rooms Tuesday. The facility adds more than two dozen ER beds and features the latest medical technology.

“It means a lot of different things – shorter wait times, it means more comfort in the rooms. It means faster throughput and faster imaging for example, but even higher quality imaging with the new scanners that are placed in the emergency room, which was really unique,” chief of staff Scott Eisman said.
