We took your feedback and comments from our Patient Satisfaction Surveys, Social Media, Focus Groups, Patient Family Advisory Committee and used them to develop a strategic plan. This plan addresses solutions to the opportunities you identified to modernize and update our facilities and improve the patient experience. This plan required a large capital investment from the Huntsville Hospital Health System. Today we are here to announce that Huntsville Hospital Health System is making an investment of $20 million in Decatur Morgan Hospital for facility improvements.
What This Means for Our Patients and Community
MORE PRIVATE ROOMS
The number of our private rooms is increasing at our Decatur Campus by the end of 2018, bringing us in line with other area hospitals
OF ALL PATIENT ROOMS
In addition to increasing the number of private rooms, ALL of our patient rooms at the Decatur Campus are undergoing major renovations and will be brighter, more modern, and more family friendly.
Two years ago, we added new bedside technology that increased nursing time at the bedside from 25% to 60 %. This will be added to all the new rooms.
We are also expanding our Nurse Call System to improve response times to patient calls.
BRAND-NEW MRI SUITE
Our MRI will be moving to a brand new, beautiful suite inside the hospital.
NEW BRIGHT & MODERN ENTRANCE
Our main entrance is moving to Plaza 1 where people enter from the parking deck. It will be bright, modern, and much more welcoming when people visit.
The old Entrance will become our Discharge Area with Updated Patient Waiting, a Retail Pharmacy and expanded Gift Shop.
IMPROVED ER EXPERIENCE
We are starting over with Decatur Campus ER to improve the patient experience by making the ER more efficient and patient focused. The ER will be expanding treatment rooms and updating the entire ER to better serve all ages in our community.
