The old entrance to South Central Regional Medical Center’s emergency room will be the new entrance — on a temporary basis — come Monday.
The driveway to the ER will be off 13th Avenue, right across from South Central Orthopedics, on the west side of the medical center, hospital officials said. That will be the entry way beginning at 11 a.m. Monday as construction continues to the expansion, which includes a new ER.
SCRMC officials got the word out to the media this week so residents could be aware of the change.
“Minutes count when you have a life-threatening emergency,” said Doug Higginbotham, CEO and president of SCRMC.
Signs have been placed along the thoroughfare directing traffic to the temporary entrance.
