CCMH opens new Emergency Department


June 15th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

The Cass County Memorial Hospital began caring for its patients in the new Emergency Department (ED) effective 2:00 pm, Friday, June 15th. Officials say patients coming to the new Emergency Department will still use the south ambulance drive.  The new ED Garage doors will open automatically when a vehicle approaches.  Patients may park outside the ED and enter on foot through the new ED entrance, which is to the right of the temporary ED entrance that has been in use for the past year.

The Same Day Surgery and Surgery Departments also moved into the new facility on June 15th.  Beginning Monday, June 18th, all scheduled surgery patients will register in the new ED Admissions, just inside the ED entrance, and utilize the new Same Day Surgery Department and operating rooms.

Patients or visitors who are unsure about how to access any hospital services during this transition are encouraged to call ahead for clarification, or ask any hospital staff member for assistance.
