MountainView Hospital announces its expanded Emergency Room is now open, bringing an additional 20 beds/bays to the ER, bringing the total number of private ER treatment areas to 60.

The ER project was the first phase of MountainView's $120 million multi-phase expansion. The expansion includes a five-story patient tower, in addition to the now open additional ER space. A total of 64 patient beds will be added to the hospital's current 425 beds. The expansion will add 65,600 square feet to the hospital.

Additionally, a five-story, 640-space parking garage is under construction at the southeast corner, near the hospital's second medical office building, at 2880 N. Tenaya Way.

“MountainView Hospital continues to meet the needs for emergency services in our community,” said Matthew Cova, Interim Chief Executive Officer. “We have experienced an increase in patients choosing our Emergency Department for their emergency care needs. This expansion will help streamline the process, allowing for more people to be seen in a timely and efficient manner.”

MountainView recently opened a 10-bed expansion on its Women's Services unit to serve women and their families. The dedicated 10-bed unit is on the third floor, adjacent to labor and delivery, postpartum and antepartum rooms, bringing the Women's Services department to 27 private-postpartum beds in total.
