Entrance to Humboldt General Emergency Department Will Change Temporarily

The entrance to the HGH Emergency Department will move northwest approximately 50 yards for the next few weeks.

Beginning at 7 a.m. Monday, December 11, all ER patients will use the ramp entrance on Mizpah Street to access Emergency Department services. The temporary change will also apply to patients who need to check in after regular business hours, as well as any after-hours visitors.

The ramp entrance is located between the current ER entrance and the hospital’s new parking garage. Residents are encouraged to identify the temporary entrance in case of emergency; beginning Monday morning, signage will also direct patients to the temporary entry point.

According to HGH Emergency Services Manager Robyn Dunckhorst, construction crews are nearing the end of a months-long expansion and remodel of the Emergency Department.

“This is the final phase before project’s end,” she said, noting that the temporary entrance will likely last for several weeks before the entire department is ready for occupancy.

“We realize this is an inconvenience for our patients, but we promise the end result will be worth it,” she said. “Our new department is truly a 21st century emergency care facility.”

Dunckhorst said the public will be notified when construction crews are finished and the ER reverts to its permanent entrance.

For more information, please call the HGH Emergency Department at (775) 623-5222, ext. 1240. Patients must travel an extended ramp with a slight grade to access the temporary ER entrance. Those who need wheelchair assistance upon reaching the ramp should also call (775) 623-5222, ext. 1240, day or night.
