So when will it all be done? According to Mr. Conte, the tower is slated for a mid-to-late spring opening, but the front of the hospital will not be completed until most likely mid-summer. A glassed-in pedestrian walkway or concourse will connect the new main entryway with the older (current) one, and the island that once stood in front of the hospital will be restored.

A grand opening is planned for late July, but prior to that a video will be made available to reveal the “wonders of the new tower,” said Lisa Champeau, Public Relations manager. “The community asked for private rooms, and we are happy to be able to offer them beginning this spring. The technology inside the rooms, from the whiteboards to the new nurse call equipment will enhance patient-staff communication, patient tracking, scheduling, noise reduction and more. We’re excited about it and can’t wait to show it off!”
