What's happening Tuesday

Emergency department services are switching July 15 from the original Trios hospital on South Auburn Street in Kenne-wick to the new Trios Southridge Hospital.

At 7 a.m., the Southridge emergency department will go live, as the Auburn Street ER turns off it lights before reopening later in the morning as urgent care.

The Southridge facility will be Trios' main hospital, with in-patient services from the ER to surgery and intensive care. And the Auburn Street building will become the Trios Women's and Children's Hospital, which will include a birthing center and pediatrics.
