Lieutenant Governor Brad Owen joined officials with Mason General Hospital and Family of Clinics Wednesday in dedicating the hospital’s new Surgery Wing.
The wing, which is phase 1 of the Hospitals Campus Renewal Construction Project, is 20,000 square feet and includes three new state-of-the-art surgery suits, upgraded inpatient rooms, and new lab draw stations. Bob Appel is Chief Executive Officer for the Hospital:
The total project will cost $33 Million and was financed through bonds with NO new taxes. Phase 2 of the project begins this month with completion next summer. Eric Moll, Chief Administrative Officer for the Hospital, summarizes the work to be done in the second phase:
The Hospital’s main entrance will move to the new Surgery Wing on the south side of the campus on August 16th. The Lieutenant Governor was keynote speaker for the dedication:
Phase 2 of Mason General Hospital’s Campus Renewal Project will have an impact on the Hospital’s Cafeteria which will be temporarily moved to the United Methodist Church, 1900 King Street, just to the south of the Hospital grounds. That relocation will be effective Monday (August 6). Also crews will demolish the existing surgery areas to make way for the MRI suite, new conference rooms, and additional rooms to the ER.
