Larger emergency rooms planned in two South Florida hospitals
South Florida Sun-Sentinel, January 3, 2008
Delray (FL) Medical Center and Jupiter (FL) Medical Center are spending about $10 million to nearly double the size of their emergency departments. Jupiter is spending another $4.2 million to add a "progressive care unit" for critically ill patients who do not need intensive care. The growth in population was the stimulus to expand for both towns. The first phase of Jupiter's construction has been completed, and will add anywhere from 17 to 26 beds. Delray's construction will end in February and also add anywhere from 17 to 35 beds.
