St. Anthony's Hospital celebrates as its new center rises

Now, the skeleton is up, and the building is taking shape. .

The final beams for the outside of St. Anthony's Hospital's new $50 million Emergency Center and Patient Care Tower were put in place recently, and employees celebrated with a "topping off" ceremony. Doctors, nurses and other staff members signed their names on a beam that will be used to support an outside water tower.

The rest of the 100,000-square-foot building should be open in early 2012. Along with 32 private exam rooms, it will have separate entrances for ambulances and a bigger waiting room with wireless access.

A trip to the emergency room will be a little faster with a new electronic medical reporting system. Diagnostic results will come more quickly with a new advanced CT scanner and a dedicated imaging lab. There will also be two critical care cardiac exam rooms.

The 395-bed hospital was founded in 1931 as a ministry of the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany.
