BATON ROUGE - Baton Rouge General Medical Center Mid City is in the process of expanding its emergency room as LSU winds down operations at Earl K. Long Medical Center in north Baton Rouge.

Maryann Rowland, a hospital spokeswoman, says the expansion comes as the Mid City hospital has been inundated with a significant increase of people showing up in the emergency room.

Rowland says the number of patients visiting the emergency room has increased 20 percent during the past few months, prompting an addition to the emergency room.

The General's Mid City location has 30 emergency room beds. Rowland says the new project will add up to seven patient care areas.
