Emergency Department Expansion & Renovation

You Spoke. We Listened.

"Our patients have asked for faster service, and a better overall Emergency Room experience. A $36 million expansion and renovation project will update our ER to the expectations of today’s caregiver and patient. It will also give our patients faster access to care, and meet the need for greater privacy. When people in our community need emergency care, they can trust that Adena not only has the talent, but will soon have a facility that will give them what they need, when they need it most." – Adena Interim CEO & President Dr. John Fortney
