CHELSEA, MI – Chelsea Community Hospital wishes to inform the community that service to patients and their families will remain uninterrupted throughout the duration of its multi-phase construction project, which broke ground on March 22.
All Hospital services, including the 24-hour emergency room, will be open as usual throughout the duration of the project and will continue uninterrupted.
“Our high-quality service to our patients and their families remains unchanged as we build a new, state-of-the-art facility for the communities we serve,” said Kathleen Griffiths, President and CEO of CCH. “We are working closely with our construction management team to minimize any inconvenience to our patients and visitors.”
The project includes a two-story addition, including a 54 new beds which will make all the Hospital’s rooms private, as well as new Emergency Room, x-ray/imaging areas, outpatient rehab/therapy, front entrance, and lobby.
“To help with way finding and avoid confusion, we will have clear, up-to-date signage to direct our patients to the services they need, as well as current information posted on our website,” Griffiths added. “Though there will be periodic changes to traffic flow, plenty of convenient parking will be available for patients and visitors at all times. Our patients and their families remain our priority, throughout this project and beyond. We look forward to continuing to provide exceptional health care, now and when the new facility opens in 2012.”
