We are excited to announce that the AdventHealth Hendersonville Emergency Department renovation and expansion project began on February 14.
Over the past year, AdventHealth has seen a 23% increase in patient visits in the Emergency Department and many patients have traveled additional miles past other care choices in appreciation of the whole-person care experience provided by our team.
To efficiently meet this high volume of need, this project will provide four dedicated behavioral health rooms. These rooms will be in a secure, contained area which will provide a more healing environment for these patients. The project also includes four new Fast Track rooms, five new disposition rooms, and a new lobby, registration and security area. In all, 3,962 square feet of new space will be added while also renovating 5,145 square feet of existing space.
The outcome of this project will be a more efficient layout and workflow for our Emergency Department team that will result in decreased wait times for our patients and will allow AdventHealth to continue providing excellent, personalized care as we meet the growing needs of the local community.
