University Medical Center in Tucson opened a new emergency room last week, part of the hospital’s $200 million capital improvement program financed with proceeds from $137 million of revenue bonds sold in 2005 and another $55 million of bonds sold in March of this year.

The new emergency room and trauma unit is twice the size of the old one, which opened in 1994. The old emergency room will serve as the lobby of a dedicated children’s medical center within the ­hospital that is to open next year.
