posted on Wednesday, May 30, 2012 in Blog

Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare will break ground on a construction project that will bring a larger, more state-of-the-art Emergency Department to Covenant Medical Center Thursday, June 7, 2012. Also, the Covenant Foundation will announce plans for a public capital campaign to support the $17 million project. Emergency room patient volume continues to increase and to appropriately meet the needs of the Cedar Valley, a new Emergency Department will be constructed on the west side of Covenant Medical Center, allowing better accessibility for patients and their loved ones. The project is expected to be completed in fall, 2013.
