Los Angeles County hospital doubles ER beds in $12M project

Beverly Hospital in Montebello, Calif., held a groundbreaking ceremony for a $12 million emergency center expansion Wednesday, according to a Whittier Daily News report.

The expansion project will increase the number of beds from 17 to 32 and will include two new rapid medical exam rooms to more efficiently treat non-life-threatening conditions.

The project will also include 18 renovated maternity suites, a GI lab, a new interventional radiology suite, a new walk-in entrance, a modified ambulance pad and a remodeled waiting area and nursing station.

The project is scheduled to be finished in 2020.
