Big changes are coming to the emergency room (ER) at Mercy St. Francis Hospital.

With the help of a private donor, Mercy plans to make a major expansion inside its ER, including an upgraded triage area, remodeled front lobby with environmentally-friendly features, new additions to patient rooms, a more secure medicine room and a revamped nurses station.

“From patient satisfaction to better security, this project is going to be a win-win for everyone,” said Roger Strosnider, director of facilities at Mercy St. Francis. “Our co-workers cannot wait to watch as we transform these vital areas in the months ahead.”

Mercy St. Francis Hospital invitef co-workers, the community and media to a kickoff celebration on Nov. 11.

The ER enhancement project is made possible thanks to a generous donation to the Sr. M. Cornelia Blasko Foundation / Mercy Health Foundation. To learn more about the Nov. 11 event, call Karen Simpson-Neasby at 417-533-6192.
