New look, new entrance at CGH

Emergency Department visitors have new entry

STERLING – Along with Thursday’s 2 a.m. opening of the expanded emergency department at CGH Medical Center comes a new ED entrance.

The old entrance on the northeast corner of the building now is in a construction zone, and there are no staff there to assist patients, officials say.

There’s a big red and yellow poster-sized sign on the old door directing people to the new entrance, which is to the left, beneath the temporary awning/scaffolding at the southeast corner of the hospital, near the corner of LeFevre Road and 2nd Avenue.

You can’t miss it: There’s a big new red and white sign above it that says EMERGENCY.

For security purposes, ED visitors now will be limited to two per patient, and the double doors on the main entrance facing LeFevre will be locked after 8 p.m.

Contact CGH spokeswoman Rebecca Green, rebecca.green@cghmc.com or 815-625-0400, ext. 5554, for more information.
