Lobby Renovations to Include New Flooring, Information and Valet Areas
Our hospital lobby will undergo a transformation in the coming weeks, including new tile flooring and an Information/Valet area near the main entrance. We appreciate your patience as we work to improve our hospital. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of November.
Construction on 8th Floor of the Hospital
Construction began in June to relocate the Intermediate Care Unit (IMCU) adjacent to the Intensive Care Unit on the 8th floor of the hospital. To minimize disruption from construction crews, an elevator system is being built outside the hospital for transporting construction materials and personnel. It will extend from the 8th floor windows down to the side of the Radiation Medicine lot. This system reduces traffic through the hospital and allows us to optimize elevators that are intended for patients and staff. During construction, the entrance to the Radiation Medicine area will remain operational, with fencing separating construction activities from pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
Handicapped Parking Spots Expanded
To better serve our patients, we increased the number of handicapped parking spaces from 64 to 77 spots. They have also been relocated to the Carlton Street side of the ramp to make them closer to the hospital and Scott Bieler Clinical Sciences Center. We thank you for your patience and support as we work to improve our campus.
Substation Building Construction
Construction is underway on our substation building and may affect the ability of large trucks to enter the loading dock areas facing Michigan Street. If you are a commercial truck driver and need to make a delivery, please contact our Shipping and Receiving Department at 716-845-3143.
