ST. CLOUD -- A small construction project to one of the entrances at St. Cloud Hospital is set to begin later this week.

St. Cloud Hospital's South entrance and driveway will be closed starting Wednesday, as part of a redesign of the Emergency Trauma Center entrance.

During construction, patients, families and staff who use the South entrance for outpatient services, radiology and registration are asked to use the Woods entrance next to the South entrance.

The redesign of the entrance will improve patient access, enhance safety and security, be more efficient for staff, and improve emergency room services for patients.

Construction is expected to be completed in early 2016.
