The $37.5 million project took 17 months to complete and is the end of the first of three phases that the hospital is planning. The new emergency department is triple the size of the previous and includes 37 rooms. These rooms include new emergency department features such as a decontamination room, a bereavement room, and a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) room.  

St. Luke's now also has the region’s most technologically advanced cardiac Cath Labs and CT-Scanners, as well a cardiac rehabilitation gym and diagnostics center.  

There were 60,000 square feet of interior construction and 70,000 square feet of exterior construction to include a parking ramp, ambulance garage, and helistop.

The second phase of expansion is currently in planning and there is no estimated time until completion.
