The Frankfort Area Chamber of Commerce, some business members, board members and Ambassadors helped fellow Chamber member Frankfort Regional Medical Center celebrate the completion of their Emergency Department renovation on Saturday, June 1, 2013.
The $8.4 million dollar Emergency Department renovation completes an 18-month project that expanded the current space by an additional 2,600 square feet, now totaling over 19,500 square feet. The new space also increased the number of beds from 18 to 28, enclosed in their own individual rooms for greater privacy. Another key feature of the renovation was the addition of a new 64-slice CT scanner, that goes head-to-toe in less than 10 seconds. The goal of the newly renovated Emergency Department is to cut out waiting times altogether.
