The emergency department at Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital sees all kinds of patients and all kinds of health problems. Thanks to the support of the local community and the Lebanon Community Hospital Foundation, the emergency department is growing from 12 beds to more than 20 beds by spring 2018. 

The expansion of the emergency department will help ensure that local residents get high quality care close to home. When it’s finished, the department will have 21 private patient rooms, including two large trauma rooms, two nurse stations and a waiting room twice the size of the current waiting room.

The emergency department expansion is part of an $11-million project that also included construction of a new surgery department with two large state-of-the-art surgery suites, and a new same day care department with 14 private patient rooms.

The Lebanon Community Hospital Foundation is helping to support this overall project with a $2 million campaign. The M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust has announced it will finish off the foundation’s Emergency Room Renovation Campaign with a top-off grant of $150,000, and the foundation has less than $130,000 to raise in order to receive the Murdock grant.
