Grand Opening of Unity Hospital:
After 4 years of construction and 5 years of planning with Unity Hospital to expand and modernize the former Park Ridge Hospital, they have opened their doors to the new hospital. The highly specialized $180 million dollar project included work with most departments at the hospital: ACM Medical Laboratory, Acute Rehabilitation, Adult Day Care, After Hours Care, August Family Birth Place, Brain Injury, Cancer Care, Cardiology, Cardiopulmonary Rehab, Chemical Dependency, Child Care, Dental Services, Diabetes & Endocrinology, Diagnostic Imaging, Dialysis, Endoscopy/GI, Emergency Services, Family Medicine, Geriatric Medicine, Home Health Care, Intensive Care Unit, Internal Medicine, and Joint Replacement. A new entrance and concourse is a welcomed addition to the Hospital.
Grand Opening of Noyes Hospital Emergency Department:
Congratulations to Noyes Health on opening their new Emergency Department! Nicholas Noyes Memorial Hospital’s former Emergency Department was undersized for the current patient volume. Noyes Health tasked Gardner PLUS to assist them in designing a space that would address these concerns. The new floor plan is three times as large as the existing and incorporates a racetrack concept with 8 treatment rooms around a central nurse station, separate entrances for the ambulance and walk-in population, a new triage process, decontamination room, observation units and Phlebotomy Suite. The former ED is being re-purposed as an Observation Unit for 23-hour stays.
