New emergency department, patient tower open at SARH
San Antonio Regional Hospital celebrated the New Year with the opening of its new 52-bed emergency department and 92-bed patient tower. The hospital’s new Vineyard Tower not only provides the latest medical technology and advanced care delivery systems; it offers patients and their families the comfort and convenience of private accommodations.
Each patient room has been designed to create a calm and healing environment for patients and their loved ones, while also providing the healthcare team with immediate access to essential medical equipment and supplies needed to provide exceptional care.
The completion of the hospital’s $160 million expansion comes as emergency rooms throughout the Inland Empire have faced challenges in recent years as the demand for medical services continues to grow.
Combined with the rooms in the hospital’s existing Citrus Tower, San Antonio Regional Hospital’s total bed capacity has grown from 271 to 363.
The expansion is the largest in the hospital’s 109-year history and was designed and constructed to bring residents the very best hospital experience, with modern amenities, state-of-the-art equipment and streamlined processes for managing patient care.
“While extraordinary attention to detail was employed throughout the planning and execution of our new Vineyard Tower, the hospital’s legacy is not defined solely by providing state-of-the-art facilities and the latest in medical technology; it also encompasses the caring team of professionals who have devoted their lives to providing excellence with compassion for the people we serve,” stated Harris F. Koenig, president and CEO of San Antonio Regional Hospital.
For more than 100 years, San Antonio Regional Hospital has offered advanced medical care for residents throughout the Inland Empire region. The hospital offers a full range of medical, obstetrical, and surgical services, including open heart, vascular, neurosurgery and urgent care. The hospital treats more than 200,000 patients each year, and is one of the busiest paramedic receiving centers in San Bernardino County. San Antonio has a strong history and reputation for quality care with a personal touch.
The hospital is located at 999 San Bernardino Rd., Upland. To learn more, visit sarh.org.
