Providence Hospital To Expand ER

Southfield’s Providence Hospital plans to invest $5 million to revamp its emergency department.

Upgrades include a more than 4,000-square-foot addition to the ER that will be home to 16 new acute care treatment areas.  That will bring the ER to around 30,000 square feet.  Also, much of the current emergency room will be renovated.

“Each year we care for more than 60,000 people in our emergency department. This expansion will help enable our doctors and nurses to enhance the already high quality care they provide to our patients,” says Dr. Michael Wiemann, Providence Hospital president, and executive vice president, St. John Providence Health System West Region.

Construction on the project, near 9 Mile Road and Northwestern Highway, is set for early this year.  In addition, the Providence Health Foundation has embarked on a campaign to raise funds for further upgrades to the department.
