Aspirus Wausau Hospital has begun expansion on a new roughly 30,000-square-foot emergency department, Aspirus officials say. 

The expansion began Monday and will roughly double the space from the old emergency department, Aspirus spokespeople say. 

The move comes as demand for emergency department space has grown, Aspirus officials say. The expansion will see 18 rooms expand to 30, a new triage room, more critical care rooms, a larger waiting area, better patient parking and more efficient heating and cooling. 

Customers shouldn’t expect any disruption in services, Aspirus officials say. The expansion should take two years over three phases of work.
