Facility Master Plan 2007 Phase 2 Project Updates
The second phase of the Facility Master Plan 2007 consists of 26,000 square feet of new space connecting the new patient wing constructed in 2010 and the current hospital space. It includes construction of a new surgery wing located between the hospital emergency department and the new patient wing. The surgery wing consists of three surgery suites (with storage space to expand to a fourth surgery suite), two endoscopy rooms, adequately sized sterile supply processing and storage, a post anesthesia care unit (PACU) and secondary recovery and pre-op spaces.
The outpatient spaces will consist of dedicated observation rooms for patients requiring short-term observation as well as patients receiving pain or other medication injections, chemotherapy, blood transfusions and other related outpatient usage.
The second phase also includes a large community and staff meeting room for wellness programs such as diabetic education, newborn education, 55PLUS, Fitness Reaching Older Generations (FROG) and much more, as well as completion of a large healing garden linking the south ends of Phase 1 and 2 construction.
Surgery & Outpatient Space Advantages
- Larger rooms provide space for the equipment necessary for today’s more intense procedures.
- Patients enjoy better privacy than is offered in the current surgery space.
- More procedure rooms will meet a growing demand for scope surgeries.
- Improve the flow of inpatient and outpatient surgeries. Currently we are performing inpatient and outpatient surgery cases in a unit designed to serve inpatients.
- Efficiency throughout the surgery department will be greatly enhanced, with adequate pre-op and recovery spaces for better use of surgery and scope rooms and staging of patients.
Phase 2 began the spring of 2011 and is scheduled to be completed in March 2012.
