Starting Monday, July 8th, the construction phase for the new emergency department will begin; changing where you can enter into the hospital.
The main entrance to the Methodist University Hospital at 1265 Union Avenue will be temporarily relocated off of Bellevue Avenue. A new circle is being created off of Bellevue Avenue to allow vehicle drop off access during construction. Pedestrian access to the new entry will be available from the marked walkway along Bellevue. The entry point to the marked walkway is at the corner of Eastmoreland and Bellevue.
The new emergency department will add 93,000 square feet of new space and 6,200 square feet of renovated space. It will also add sixteen (16) patient treatment areas bringing the total treatment areas to fifty four (54) and will be built to green building design standards.
