Phase III of our Construction Project is now complete and we are using our new parking lot and patient drop off. The new registration area is also actively receiving patients and we have moved into our new Laboratory space. We have started phase IV of the project which has closed off the front entrance for construction and has forced us to move the Emergency Department Entrance to another door in front of the hospital.  Ambulance and Emergency patients can press the button for service and entrance.  Construction Website.
