When Humboldt County Memorial Hospital (HCMH) holds an open house this Sunday to celebrate its new expansion, people will see not only a modern and expanded space for patient care, they will see the largest building project in Humboldt County’s history, in terms of size and scope.
It was just over two years ago that HCMH Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Michelle Sleiter held a press conference and announced the construction of a two-story, 40,000 square foot addition to the hospital, as well as extensive remodeling to the front patient service area of the hospital.
The new addition includes space for primary care medical providers through the relocation of the UnityPoint Clinic, inside the hospital. The area also has outpatient specialty services, therapy and rehabilitation services, cardio-pulmonary services, diabetic education, dietary support, patient education area, a wellness exercise room, occupational therapy suite, new space for the HCMH laboratory, and a new conference center that doubles the space of the ground floor room west of the cafeteria.
The building project also includes renovated space within the existing hospital, including an expanded and new look for Genevieve’s Place, the hospital auxiliary’s hospitality area and gift shop, and a remodeled patient registration area providing more privacy for visitors and patients.
To read all about the expansion, see the special section on HCMH in this week's Humboldt Independent. On sale today, or get it delivered to your home via print or online editions by clicking on the 'Subscribe' link on this page.
