Emergency Room entrance is OPEN

Work was completed much sooner than expected on the Emergency Room entrance at Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County.

Patients and visitors can once again use the ER lobby as the main entrance into the hospital, said Public Information Officer Deb Sutton. A late-February water break in the fire suppression system caused extensive damage to the ER entrance. Repairing and replacing the flooring was expected to last through Friday. However, crews were able to complete the work in one day.

“We thank all of our patients and visitors for their patience today and for letting us help them get to their appointments,” Sutton said. “It will be business as usual tomorrow. Patients and visitors can once again use the Emergency Room entrance for access to the hospital. The main doors to the hospital continue to remain closed at this time.
