MountainView Hospital announces it has opened the second portion of its ER expansion, adding another 16 treatment areas to the department.

This phase adds beds, treatment areas and an additional 4,500 square feet to the ER, which opened the first phase of its expansion in 2022. The ER now has 76  total treatment areas.

“MountainView Hospital continues to meet the needs for emergency services in our community,” said Hiral Patel, Chief Executive Officer. “We continue to experience an increase in patients choosing MountainView for their emergency care needs.”

The ER expansion is part of a larger campus expansion to MountainView Hospital. That 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 and is expected to open Fall 2023.

This June, MountainView also opened its six-story, 543-space parking garage near the ER and the hospital’s second medical office building, at 2880 N. Tenaya Way.
