Friday, February 28, 2014
Carilion Franklin Memorial Hospital (CFMH) will begin making improvements to the Emergency Department (ED), beginning Monday, March 3.
Improvements will include painting, repairs and floor refinishing in the ED entrance, and waiting and registration areas.
The ED waiting area will be closed March 3-16. The registration and entrance areas will remain open, but seating will be located in the hospital main lobby.
From March 17 into early April, patients needing ED services will use the main hospital entrance, registration and waiting areas.
CFMH staff will be available to assist patients arriving at the covered entrance ramp. Staff will escort patients from the temporary ED waiting area to the ED for treatment. Signs will be posted providing additional information as well.
"CFMH is excited about providing an updated, fresh waiting area for ED patients and visitors," said Allison Buth with Carilion. "We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we work to improve our facility for those we serve."
