The ER is getting a lot of work done! Now, all 16 patient rooms are sheetrocked and ready for the next step. More studs have been installed, which means more areas are ready for walls.
Spring is here, and rooms, hallways and clinics could pass for complete. More areas are getting ready to take shape, including the resident kitchen.
Major sections like the Nurses Station, the flat roofs over the Care Center, and main hallways are nearly complete. The wall between the ER and the ER garage has also been installed and is coming together.
Eight patient rooms are almost ready to be occupied as of this week, but won’t be until the ER is completed. The temporary roof was pulled back early this week in preparation for roofers.
With March rolling in, it’s out with the old and in with the new emergency department. The floors have been dug up and there’s a wide-open space ready for more progress. Eight patient rooms are almost ready to go, but they will not be used until all the patient rooms and the emergency department is complete.
Studs are being placed in preparation for wall installation. The old maintenance room and kitchen is nearly empty so the crew can start transforming it into the new ER and patient rooms.
The layout is getting more and more apparent each week, especially with more structures appearing this week. The Nurses Station and the old kitchen is cleared out to be remodeled.
