Starting Monday, the entrance to the Emergency Department is closed along with one entrance into the main parking lot of the Colquitt Regional Medical Center.
Patients who need to access the Emergency Department will now enter through the current Admissions & Registration lobby entrance.
"It's a little inconvenience," said Medical Center CEO & President Jim Matney. "But once we get done, we will have a
brand new emergency room, brand new OR and brand new ICU."
The renovations are expected to be completed by fall of 2014.
