The emergency and trauma center is the first phase of the capital projects, according to a Sharp HealthCare news release.

So far, $86 million has been raised for the campaign, called "Envision: The Campaign for Sharp HealthCare."

The expansion of the emergency and trauma center will add 31 treatment rooms, a new CT room and two specialized rooms for patients with contagious diseases.

The projects will happen over the next decade, according to the news release.
