With summer upon us, construction of Kenmore Mercy Hospital’s new Emergency Department is in full swing. The construction will be done in a number of phases in order to keep the impact to our patients and neighbors at a minimum.
“Our goal is to ensure the integrity of our neighbor’s landscaping, keep noise to a minimum, and maintain the friendly relationships we’ve built in this community over the last 60 years,” said Robert J. Fritschi, facility planner.
Over the summer, the new Emergency Department’s building foundations will be completed and ready to receive its structural frame. This fall, the structure will take shape as the steel framing is erected. The building shell is anticipated to be completed by end of the year. The goal is to complete the project by summer of 2013.
The current Emergency Department continues to operate at full capacity during this construction. Our board-certified emergency physicians provide emergency care 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
