The project spans over 5+ years and includes both remodeling and expanding the hospital, along with constructing a new medical office building on the campus.
Funding for the project will be sourced from bonds, hospital operations, financing, and philanthropy.
The remodel and expansion design involved input from over 100 stakeholders, including employees, nurses, physicians, patients, and community members.
The project emphasizes a phased approach, focusing on patient experience and access through the introduction of a "universal care unit" concept.
The outpatient universal care unit is designed for quicker rooming of patients, accommodating surges for emergency, post-procedure, and observation patients.
This approach positively impacts the hospital’s 25-bed critical access status, retaining inpatient beds, providing flexible spaces for same-day services, and maximizing space utilization.
The design incorporates increased surgical capacity, room for recruiting additional surgical specialties, and enhanced emergency patient capacity.
Specialized behavioral health patient rooms in a secure area are included, along with provisions for future expansion and integration with a new medical office building.
The phased construction approach aims to minimize disruption to hospital operations, starting with the first phase that includes Emergency Department expansion, surgery expansion, BirthPlace upgrades, and the relocation of services in preparation for Phase 2.
