Beginning Monday, Cuero Regional Hospital will temporarily relocate its emergency department to the front of the hospital so the current emergency department can undergo renovations.
This temporary emergency department area will be where the day surgery unit is now. To get there, turn left at the switchboard and go down the hall. Directional signs will be in place, and the switchboard will be staffed 24 hours a day to help patients locate the department or any other hospital department, according to a news release from the hospital.
All emergency patients will use the hospital's front parking lot and enter through the main, front entrance.
When completed the emergency department will have six private patient rooms, an enlarged waiting room space, more private patient registration areas, and an upgraded nurse's station to improve patient flow, according to the news release.
The day surgery unit has been temporarily moved to the second floor.
The day surgery unit, where the emergency department will be housed, features five private patient rooms and a waiting area.
When the emergency department renovation is complete, the day surgery department will move back to the first floor.
Renovation and construction is being completed by Lauger Companies Inc.
