Miami, FL (August 12, 2015) – Coral Gables Hospital unveils its newly remodeled emergency room, designed to provide patients with a more efficient emergency care experience.

The renovations include a quick care area with five patient bays, brand new equipment and modern décor. The ER’s radiology room was also upgraded with new equipment and flooring.
