Notice to Community on Temporary Emergency Department Entrance at McLeod Dillon

Effective August 16th, patients arriving for emergency services will not be able to access the parking lot via the 301 entrance. Due to the movement of the construction fence, all traffic entering Parking Lot A will need to enter from Jackson Street, the only entry to this parking lot until further notice. Your patience is appreciated during construction as we make emergency care more accessible and timely for patients in the area.
The renovation and construction project is estimated at $6.3 million. With the addition of approximately 9,365 square feet, it will have 17 new exam and treatment rooms, including designated triage and trauma rooms, a decontamination area, and staff support spaces. A new entrance for walk-in patients will keep them separate from those arriving by ambulance.
A new family waiting area has been designed for improved privacy and safety. In addition, a dedicated site for a helicopter pad will allow transporting of trauma patients. Existing Emergency Department exam rooms and support areas will be renovated to flow into the new construction.
