Phase one of Clay County Medical Center's major remodeling and renovation project has been completed. Construction workers removed the dust wall closing the east wing off from the rest of the facility last Friday. Phase II of the project, the Mother & Baby Wing renovation, is expected to get underway Monday.
Medical Center officials said that for now, physical therapy and occupational therapy services will remain in the education center, and cardiac rehab will be remain located in the CEO's office near the radiology waiting room. Patients utilizing those services should continue to enter the hospital through the main entrance.
Respiratory Therapy will be moving back to the east wing this week. Out patients who are receiving services in the east wing, may now enter the hospital through the Wellness Center entrance to gain access to the east wing. The hospital also expects to begin using patient rooms in the east wing this week.
The remodeling of the east wing included: a new fire alarm system, an extension and upgrade of the sprinkler system, a new nurse call system, new lighting, upgrades to the heating and air conditioning and new floor and wall coverings in the hall and patient rooms.
The Mother & Baby Wing renovation will take approximately 15 weeks to complete and in the mean time the mother & baby services will be relocated to the north wing.
When completed, the Mother & Baby Wing will have two labor/deliver/recovery/post partum suites, one combination post partum/LDRP room and one post partum room. The wing will also have a new nursery, nurses station and waiting area.
