Fairmont emergency department quadrupling in size 14 Aug 15

Mayo Clinic Health System in Fairmont is expanding its emergency room. When construction is completed the department will be nearly four times larger. Hospital staff, officials and city leaders ceremonially broke ground on the $4.5 million dollar project Thursday afternoon. Mayo says increasing the ER from 2,000 square feet to just shy of 8,000 will allow for bigger patient rooms and a more private experience.
