The first phase of a renovation project at Hardin Memorial Hospital has been completed.
The first phase of the renovation project to the Outpatient Department/2nd consisted of a new endoscopy suite, high level disinfectant processing area and one patient room completed in 2016. The new endoscopy suite has more than doubled in size from the old suite and has been modernized. Each of the areas are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to enhance the patient experience and to assist the physicians.
Jeryl Kissling, manager of the department stated, "Specialty center physicians - Dr. Schirmer, general surgeon and Dr. Amigo, urologist will use the new suite for various procedures, and the pulmonologist department can use it as well." Kissling also added she is very proud of the new area and said the hospital was able to fund the project, "Through hospital operations and the proceeds from the Mistletoe Ball, the hospital foundation's largest fundraiser."
The second phase of the project will begin in July, 2017 and will consist of patient rooms, nurse's station, patient family room, supply room, consult room and a few additional offices.
