NYACK, N. Y. -- Nyack Hospital officials said focusing their efforts on making emergency room waits quicker has led to such an increase in visits that expanding its emergency department is a large part of its proposed $22.2 million improvement projec, according to lohud.com.

As the first major project since the hospital joined with Montefiore Health System two years ago, the project includes a 16,300-square-foot addition that involves a redesigned emergency department, reported lohud.com. The current emergency area is built to handle about 35,000 patients a year yet sees around 60,000, lohud.com said.

The plan still needs approval from village officials, and nearby neighbors already are worried about traffic and parking, said the lohud.com story. Hospital officials are looking to start the project by 2018, lohud.com reported.
