North Dakota hospital plans emergency department expansion

CHI St. Alexius Devils Lake (N.D.) Hospital will expand its emergency department and update its surgical capabilities, the Jamestown Sun reported Aug. 23.

The emergency department will be expanded to 6,500 square feet. New features include a triage room, more trauma care and exam rooms, a behavioral health room, negative pressure rooms for patients with infectious diseases, a bigger waiting area, and a new garage for ambulances. 

"We are committed to improving access to high-quality health care in Devils Lake, expanding our services and providing deeper care to the communities we serve," Mariann Doeling, RN, president of CHI St. Alexius Health Devils Lake, said in a new release shared with the publication. "The ultimate outcome will result in a better experience for patients and a better place for physicians, providers and staff to practice."

The expansion will be one of many renovation projects at the hospital and will begin this fall.
