The new entrance is covered and has automatic sliding doors allowing for protection from the elements and improved wheelchair access, improving the drop-off and discharge process.
Donors funded most of the cost of the $800,000+ improvement, which McCall Sharp Architecture designed and Link Construction built.
The public is invited to the ribbon-cutting and open house to see the new hospital gift shop, registration area for outpatients and waiting area for hospital visitors.
These latest improvements at the hospital follow 2017’s $3 million renovation and service expansion project, which included:
– Building a 10-bed senior behavioral health unit
– Recruitment of an orthopedic surgeon and two general surgeons, which has led to a significant increase in surgery volumes
– Doubling of the MRI service capability from two to four days weekly
– Internal renovations to modernize the facility
