Coliseum ER Expansion Update: January 22, 2018

Construction Update header 2

To Coliseum Staff:

Construction crews have 3200 work hours invested in the ER expansion project so far.

As construction continues inside of the emergency room, there will be continued noise. Thank you for your patience during this and remember that there are earplugs available if needed for patients.

Traffic to Labor & Delivery as well as Building A is being routed around the construction of the helipad.  The drive up entrance of the ER is blocked off, but personnel are available to assist patients who need help. Watch this video with a message from Todd Braswell, Director of the CMC ER:

We are in process of adding a handicap ramp to the sidewalk to assist patients from the parking lot since the drive up entrance is not accessible at this time.

Thank you for your support and cooperation with our temporary parking issues.  Please remember NOT to drive through the EMS area in front of Building B.  We are trying hard to minimize the inconvenience for our patients and be consistent with our mission: Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life. 

If you have any questions, concerns or ideas, please contact a member of the construction leadership team below.
