Hospital plans $5 million expansion

Greater Laurel Beltsville Hospital has announced plans to spend $5 million to build a two-story, 6,000-square-foot addition at the corner of the hospital where the emergency room is presently located. Hospital officials say construction could begin by next spring.

When completed, the expansion will provide the hospital with a larger emergency room, a new intensive care unit, and a new entrance and registration area for outpatients.

The larger emergency room is needed because Greater Laurel now treats more than 25,000 emergency patients a year in a facility built to accommodate 10,000 to 12,000.

Dimensions Health Corp. of Landover, the hospital's parent company, raised money for the expansion through a $50 million bond sale last year.
