Emergency Department Expansion Project

About the ANTHC Emergency Services Expansion (ESE)

ANTHC is moving forward with construction for Phase 1 of the ESE project, which includes floors 1-3 and renovations to the existing Emergency Department. Improvements that will come with the expansion of floors 1-3, include:

  • 21 additional Emergency Department patient care spaces
  • 12 new Clinical Decision Unit beds for observation
  • 15 additional behavioral health treatment space
  • 10 new surgery recovery bays
  • New, dedicated drive through ambulance entrance
  • Core and shell design necessary to build floors 4-6

ANTHC is also moving forward with designing floors 4-6 as we seek additional funding to support construction of Phase 2, which includes:

  • 60 new inpatient beds;
  • Private inpatient rooms (converting from semi-private);
  • 32 new adult inpatient beds; and
  • Helipad to enhance trauma services.

While we have a lot of work ahead, we are making significant strides to improve the services we provide.
