Kingman Arizona, May 7, 2019 – Kingman Regional Medical Center (KRMC) has announced that a 19-month
project to expand its Emergency Department (ED) has begun. The expansion will include a new ambulance
bay, additional waiting areas, and nearly double the number of patient beds― all in private rooms.
To obtain additional space, the existing ED will be expanded eastward toward Stockton Hill Road where the
current emergency parking lot is located. A new ambulance bay and ED entrance will be constructed on the
north side of the building.

The project began on May 1, 2019. First, a temporary ambulance bay is being built on the north side of KRMC
at the pharmacy entrance. (This door is now closed to the public. People are urged to use the main hospital
entrance instead.)

The temporary ambulance bay is scheduled for completion on May 20, 2019. At that time, KRMC will close the
current ambulance bay facing Stockton Hill Road and redirect ambulances through the north parking lot to the
new bay.

Ambulances traveling northbound on Stockton Hill Road will cross over to KRMC on Sycamore Avenue.
All area emergency response agencies have been notified of this change and appropriate signage will be

After the temporary ambulance bay is complete, construction of the permanent ambulance bay and a new
public entrance will begin on the north side of the building. Expected completion is August 1, 2019.
Once the new north-side entrance is open to public, the existing ED entrance facing Stockton Hill Road will be
closed. A fenced construction zone will be established around the current emergency parking area. This will
stay in place until the building expansion is completed around October 1, 2020.

From now through August 1, 2019, people should continue to use the existing ED entrance and emergency
parking area. However, after August 1, public access to the ED will be redirected to the new entrance on the
north side of the building. Emergency parking will be designated in the north parking lot.
Road signs will direct the public on the appropriate route to the Emergency Department during and after
construction. Please watch for further announcements as the project progresses.

Public Relations at 928-681-5061.

  1. when will they address LACK of parking?
    employees now half to park 1/4 MI AWAY,
    or more or ON THE STREET! (unless your a DR)
    patients must hunt for a parking spot reasonably close,
    normally on the outer edge of the parking area,
    ignoring the problem will not make it go away!
