EL DORADO, AR - The Medical Center of South Arkansas cut the ribbon to their new expansion of their emergency room in El Dorado.

Staff and community members say that the medical center is a vital part of El Dorado.

CEO of Medical Center of South Arkansas, Kyle Swift, says this expansion puts the medical center on a different level now.

"With expansion of our ER, we are adding capacity to take care of our patients for South Arkansas for the future years. It gives us a space that really matches the talents of our staff and our physicians," says Swift.

The renovation for the ER was a $3,000,000 project.
