MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Methodist South Hospital held a grand opening for its new and improved emergency room on Tuesday.

The expansion increased the facility's size from 10,000 to 24,000 square feet, and it is expected to reduce patients' wait times.

"This will really enhance both the patient and their family members' experience when they come to our emergency room department," Methodist South Hospital Interim President David Baytos said.

The old emergency room was designed to treat about 30,000 patients a year, but the facility was actually treating closer to 67,000 patients a year.
