FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Work has begun on a $1.5 million expansion of the emergency department at Sanford Medical Center in Fargo.

The Forum reports (http://bit.ly/s3EEB1 ) that visits to the emergency room are growing at the rate of 8 percent a year, and are double what the facility can handle.

The renovation will be done in three phases. It will add seven new exam rooms to bring the total to 27, expand and move the waiting room, and redesign the nurses' station.
