I am pleased to update you on the progress of four projects we are completing over the coming years. A decade ago, Campbell County Health began a plan to improve and expand our facilities, and these final four projects will basically complete that original facilities plan.
Project #1: Finishing The Legacy
We are well on our way to opening The Legacy. When the weather improves and the interior finishes are more complete this spring, we’ll announce a schedule for community tours of the facility. We look forward to welcoming new residents and moving our current residents into the new facility. Planned completion date: November 2016
Project #2: Refresh Main Entrance
If you’ve ever wrestled with our hospital’s revolving doors on a windy day, you know improvements are needed. We’ll be replacing the revolving doors and enlarging the front vestibule beginning this spring. Since this is the newest part of the building, we are keeping changes to a minimum and costs low. Planned completion date: June 2016
Project #3: New Space for Cardiac Rehabilitation
Our demand for cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation has outgrown its current area. We’ll be remodeling radiology’s old space on the first floor, giving us about 4,000 square feet, or five times the current space, for an expanded Cardiac Rehab gym, locker rooms, patient bathrooms, consult and exam rooms. It will mean more privacy for patients, greater capacity to serve more people, a new track area and dedicated spaces where nurses can better monitor patients. Planned completion date: January 2017
Project #4: Remodel CCMH Inpatient Areas
If you’ve stayed with us as a patient, you know our hospital rooms are rather small and outdated. Over the next year we’ll be planning a major overhaul of all the inpatient rooms: medical/surgical, ICU and maternal child and women’s services, using the space constructed above the main lobby that is currently empty, and remodeling other space in the building. Planned completion date for planning: 1 year
Planned completion date for construction: 4-5 years
Thank you for your continued patience as we improve our facilities.
