Rideout Emergency Department
Phase I (complete):
The Phase I expansion added 5,000 square feet to the existing 12,000 sq.
ft. and created 13 multi-use ED/Observation beds, two Rapid Care exam
rooms and an additional triage room in the facility, which now has 32
total beds. The much-anticipated expansion allows the ED to serve the
needs of a growing community. Last year, the Rideout Emergency Department
handled nearly 55,000 patient visits, in the space originally designed
for only half that volume.
The second and final phase of the expansion will be operational with the
opening of the new Rideout Regional Medical Center hospital building;
this will add another 3,000 sq. ft. and five additional beds. It also
will be served by the new building's rooftop helipad for Life Flight
operations. Rideout's Emergency Department is a Level III Trauma Center,
and the only STEMI-receiving center serving Yuba, Sutter and parts of
Nevada, Butte and Colusa Counties, equipped and staffed to handle the
most serious cases of heart attacks.
