St. Joseph Hospital Completes First Phase of $5.9 Million Operating Room Renovation Project

WHAT: New overhead surgical lighting will be installed this week in St. Joseph Hospital’s surgical suites as part of the 20,000-square-foot renovation announced in September. Surgeries will begin in this new section of the OR March 17. This first phase updated half of the OR suites and support areas.

WHEN: 10:30 a.m., Tuesday, March 4, 2014

WHERE: St. Joseph Hospital, third floor, surgical department, 700 Broadway
 
WHO:  Bethany Wall, director of perioperative services, operating room and
emergency services, St. Joseph Hospital; Weigand Construction and other contractors.

WHY: As not to interrupt service to patients, completing the renovation in phases allows the department to remain open throughout while maintaining a sterile work environment, which is of the utmost importance. The project is taking place in three phases and is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.
