obstetrical emergency center to provide 24/7 specialized care to expecting
mothers. Enhancements to existing catheterization and interventional radiology
labs will be completed late spring 2020.
As part of

is currently renovating the West Entrance, operating rooms, and updating
several patient service areas.
