Cleveland Clinic Lutheran Hospital ED expansion complete

Listen

After nearly two years of construction, the expanded emergency department at Cleveland Clinic's Lutheran Hospital in Cleveland has opened, according to a report form The Plain Dealer.

The $17.5 million project doubled the size of the ED to 14,000 square feet and added 21 new private rooms, including six behavioral health rooms. The number of patient beds increased from 14 to 21 and the ED entrance was made more prominent. An additional $5.5 million was allocated for renovations to the hospital's operating rooms and other infrastructure.

The new space also includes a built-in decontamination room for emergency preparedness, as well as an additional X-ray machine and CT equipment, according to the report.
