VA ED Expansion Now Open
The VA ED expansion opened on Dec. 5, 2018, following a ribbon cutting ceremony, the day before opening. Drs. Callahan and Martin participated in the grand opening, which was attended by veterans, staff, and local media. The new combined space has 20 beds, including a new PIT (provider in triage) room, 2 dedicated mental health rooms, 2 negative airflow rooms, an internal results waiting area, and a discharge/consult room. The new layout is designed with a split flow/streaming model, with patients flowing into designated teams by acuity level. Very exciting time for our care of veterans and for the education of our residents and students in the newly expanded ED!
