Watch Us Grow
On Monday, January 15, Redlands Community Hospital began construction on
a renovation project that will expand and improve our emergency department
and surgical center. The main entrance to the hospital is temporarily
relocated to the maternity/ surgery services entrance where patients,
visitors, physicians and staff are asked to enter the hospital. While
construction is in progress, we will continue to operate our shuttles
and have volunteers and staff assist patients and visitors to reach their
destinations. Construction is expected to last through August 2019.
The renovation will include an 8,700 square foot Surgery Center that will
add four new operating rooms, including a new hybrid intervention suite
that will allow the hospital to treat a wide range of neurological and
vascular conditions, and perform many of the most complex neurosurgery
procedures. The one-story building will be north of the maternity and
surgery services building, which already has eight operating rooms.
The Emergency Department renovation will include the development of an
additional eight-bed fast track area, a 12-bed pod for moderately ill
or injured patients, a 12-bed high-acuity pod with two critical-care rooms,
five rapid medical evaluation/triage stations and additional nursing stations
and offices. Rather than one large waiting room, the renovation will create
smaller waiting rooms that will be closer to the examination and treatment
areas. Patients undergoing laboratory tests can relax in nearby waiting
areas until their results are available, freeing up beds and exam rooms
for other patients. Once the renovation is complete, the emergency department
will more than double in size from 8,000 to 20,000 square feet.
As our community continues to grow, Redlands Community Hospital is committed
to expanding its facilities and enhancing the care it provides to its
patients. We apologize for any inconvenience or disruption you may experience
during this time.
