Tonawanda News — The hospital also began using its new emergency department as well, which was completed in late July. The $14-million, 24,000-square-foot unit was envisioned more than 10 years ago as part of Catholic Health’s effort to redo all the system’s emergency departments.
Kenmore Mercy has also recently received approval from the state Department of Health for yet another project — the addition of two operating rooms and the renovation of the eight existing ones.
The new rooms will be 600 square feet, bigger than most of the existing eight, and will be added to the rows of operating rooms on the first floor near the center of the hospital.
The project will cost $3.8 million, and construction is set to begin by the end of 2014.
