2 East is receiving a major renovation to update the 22-bed unit into single occupancy rooms, which will be used by medical and surgical adult patients. The rooms will have the same amenities and look and feel as the newly remodeled adult patient rooms. All the windows will be replaced as they are original to the building.
Construction began July 6 and it will take approximately 18 months to complete. Concurrently, 2 West (Women & Children's Center) is also being renovated. The entire project is expected to cost $7 million and span two years as the units will be renovated in phases.
The renovation work on 2 East and West, 3 West and the ENT Clinic is creating 60 full time construction (trades) jobs and the trickle down of 96 other jobs.
