Visalia's Kaweah Delta Expansion

March 25, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
Starting Wednesday, patients heading to the emergency room at Visalia's Kaweah Delta District Hospital will see more space and possibly faster service. The new expanded emergency room wing opened Wednesday morning at 6 am. Hospital officials say the extra bed space will help doctors treat more patients quickly. New trauma rooms are equipped with just about every supply doctors need, all within hands reach.

The new space also includes a high tech tube system to send lab samples and pharmacy requests, just like a bank drive thru.

The expansion is the first of many phases of improvement to the hospital.
