Southeast Health Invests US$50 million for Emergency Department Expansion Project in USA


Southeast Health Medical Centre invests $50 million in USA for emergency department and patient tower expansion project.


The four-phase expansion project for the emergency department is projected to cost slightly over $25 million. The project will include:

  • Adding 21,300 square feet to the ED and renovating 16,700 existing square feet.
  • Increasing the number of treatment spaces from 32 to 66 to handle up to 75,000 visits annually.
  • Relocating the Southeast Medicine Shop to a convenient storefront location inside the lobby.
  • Adding a CT scanner and a satellite laboratory to enhance patient flow and efficiency.
  • Incorporating a secure treatment area for behavioural health patients.
  • Expanding the waiting area to accommodate seating for 100 patients and guests.


Additionally, the project will involve adding two patient floors above the emergency department, with an investment exceeding $24.5 million. This proposed design will include a multi- storey tower with 52 new inpatient hospital beds.

These investments aim to improve access to care, quality, and the overall patient experience without incurring additional debt. 

Construction is anticipated to be completed by fall 2027.
