Bon Secours unveils a new emergency service> GSA Business
Bon Secours Saint-François has relocated its emergency service to a renovated space five times the size of its former space.
The hospital celebrated the grand opening of the 45,000-square-foot unit on Thursday after construction and renovation were completed. Staff will begin seeing patients at the facility on November 30.
“This investment reflects our commitment to providing accessible and extraordinary care to people living in our local communities,” Jenny Wehrs, COO of Bon Secours St. Francis Health System, said in a statement. “Our staff already do a phenomenal job providing care for everyone who walks through the doors. With the completion of this project, they are now able to not only care for more Greenville County residents, but also to care for them more effectively.
The new emergency department includes 42 private rooms with an ‘fast track’ option for less acute cases, waiting rooms for patients awaiting lab results, behavioral health rooms for mental health emergencies and new laboratory and radiology equipment on site.
The Bon Secours St. Francis health system is part of Bon Secours Mercy Health, one of the 20 largest health care systems in the United States and the fifth largest Catholic health care system in the country, according to the release. More than 60,000 staff members serve communities in Florida, Kentucky, Maryland, New York, Ohio, South Carolina, Virginia and Ireland.
