LEWISTON – St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center will hold an open house Wednesday June 3 to show off phase one of its Emergency Department expansion project.

The new section is dedicated to behavioral emergencies, and includes a separate entrance, waiting and treatment areas for behavioral patients. It is divided further into separate adult and pediatric areas.

The open house will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 to 6 p.m. A special blessing of the new space will take place at 11:30 a.m. at 93 Campus Ave. Light refreshments will be served throughout the day.

During the open house, staff will also give a sneak peek of the new medical exam rooms and treatment areas.

When the project is completed next year, the size of the Emergency Department will have tripled to accommodate 30 walled medical exam rooms. The rooms will be larger, offer more privacy and allow room for the latest technology bedside.
