Emergency Department Renovation Project
Reimagining The Emergency Department
A two-year renovation, rebuilding and reimagining of the Emergency Department at Central Carolina Hospital will be well worth the wait, with a 33 percent increase in beds to better serve our community’s needs.
With more than 25,000 patient visits annually, the Emergency Department is a vital touchpoint for people who live in Sanford and Lee County. The renovation project began June 19, 2023, and will take approximately two years to complete. When it’s finished, the facility will increase the total number of treatment rooms from 15 to 20.
The 13,500-square-foot department will undergo a complete remodeling, rebuilding and reorganization. Renovations will occur in eight distinct phases, to minimize disruptions to patient care.
When it’s completed, patient flow will improve dramatically, reducing patient triage and wait times. Patient rooms, hallway beds, clinical decision rooms and the fast track area will be completely reimagined, increasing the department’s capacity to care for more patients with true medical emergencies.
Patient rooms will be larger and equipped with the latest in patient-care technology. Included will be three treatment rooms designed specifically for behavioral health patients. The redesign will also accommodate future expansions as needed.
As Lee County’s population grows, Central Carolina Hospital is growing right along with it. This project represents a $10.6 million investment in the hospital by Duke LifePoint, which has operated the hospital since 2016.
