SLO’s French Hospital shows off new state-of-the-art ER

French Hospital Medical Center’s new emergency room wing is nearly ready to welcome patients, after Dignity Health Central Coast showed off the state-of-the-art facility in a recent preview.

Administrators and staff at the San Luis Obispo hospital gave tours, answered questions and held a ribbon-cutting for the $17 million facility, which faces Johnson Avenue in the hospital’s complex.

The wing adds 8,600 square feet to the hospital, more than doubling the size of its existing emergency department. (
