Faith Regional ER Ready To Reopen

NORFOLK - Those temporary emergency room entrance signs at Norfolk's hospital are about to come down. The Emergency Department and Clinical Decision Unit were severely damaged following an April storm that contained heavy rain and piles of hail that crashed through a stairwell door and flooded the area. Faith Regional Health Services Vice President of Support and Ancillary Services Tim Auwarter says not only did they repair the damage, they remodeled in certain areas to make for better patient flow. Two of the biggest changes come in the reconfiguration of the department's lobby area and nurse's station. Auwarter says the new and improved emergency department at Faith Regional opens at 6:00 a.m. on Thursday, September 13th.
