MACON, Ga. (AP) – A medical center in middle Georgia is expanding its emergency room department to serve more than 12,000 patients a year.
  
The Telegraph of Macon reports the Coliseum Medical Centers completed the expansion this week after more than seven months of remodeling. The $7 million restoration project began in 2017 to improve care at the emergency department.
  
Much of the money went toward a new helipad in the parking lot for air ambulances carrying patients. The hospital also widened its ambulance canopy, installed a new CT scan imaging system and added five more beds to the emergency room.
  
Last year, the hospital launched a graduate medical education training program. The program accepted 10 internal medicine and four psychiatry residents in its first year, and 27 more residents joined the program this month.
