There are a lot of freshly painted walls and new fixtures at the hospitals of the Parkridge Health System, as workers conduct renovations at several Parkridge facilities.
“There are many changes taking place on all of the Parkridge campuses,” said Darrell Moore, Parkridge Health System CEO. “These improvements will enhance the excellent care that we provide to our patients.”
At the Birth Place at Parkridge East Hospital, crews have just completed updates of the Mother/Baby suites, and work is progressing on the Labor & Delivery suites. The hospital is completing installation of flat-panel TVs in all patient rooms, and renovations are underway in the lobby and all of the facility’s main corridors. The Parkridge East Emergency Department is also slated for major updates, which will be completed in the months to come.
“We want to make our hospital as welcoming and comfortable as possible,” said Parkridge East CEO Jarrett Millsaps. “Our goal is to provide a truly ‘boutique’ feel for mothers-to-be and their families who seek a warm, highly personal environment for the delivery of their child.”
Parkridge Medical Center is expanding its surgical services area, a process which includes upgrading one operating room for use in delicate and complicated spinal procedures as well as the addition of an operating room to accommodate the growing needs of the community.
“We look forward to providing our surgeons with additional space and the technology they need to achieve high-quality results for their patients,” said Parkridge Medical Center CNE Jerri Underwood.
For Parkridge Valley Hospital, work continues on Standifer Gap Road at the former Cumberland Hall facility, which will be home to Parkridge Valley Adult and Senior Campus when it opens next year.
“Parkridge Valley is looking forward to the changes that 2013 will bring,” said Brennan Francois, CEO of the behavioral health facility.
