Construction of the Lobby, Patient Waiting and Discharge areas is under way. You will see new flooring and wall treatments being put into place.
A new HVAC has already been added to Plaza One preparing it to become the new Main Entrance. Plaza One is located on 7th Street directly across from the Parking Deck.
Soon a revolving door will be added at the entrance and a beautiful entry features will greet our patients and guests. We do apologize for the temporary inconvenience but the end result is going to be so worth it!
The construction crews have almost completed the new roof on the south side (8th Street) of the building.
They have also begun construction of the new patient rooms that will be added to the 4th Floor.
