JOHNSON CITY (WBNG) — A major expansion is coming to the UHS in Johnson City. Boyd added the expansion will create 70 new jobs in the area. UHS got input from their employees on the dimensions and work flow of the designed new emergency room. Vice president of community relations Christina Boyd tells 12 News these additions will help serve the Broome County area. “We mocked up the emergency room, and brought our staff in there, and got them to give us feedback on the size of the rooms, the placement of different equipment,” Boyd says. The healthcare provider says it will be investing $132 million into a six-story building. Construction is expected to begin this fall. Boyd expects the project to be completed within the next three or four years. A helipad, new emergency room and more is to be included in the project. “It’s also going to be, I think, a magnet for healthcare professionals at all levels. I think this facility will really be a game-changer,” Duncan says. UHS says the the expansion is funded through the Broome County Industrial Development Agency. Executive director Stacey Duncan believes this expansion could be bigger than just a building. “The needs of those patients was a significant part of what we had in mind when we began looking at this new structure,” Boyd says.
