We've broken ground

Today we formally break ground on our new 11-floor hospital.

Ceremonial groundbreakings are often seen by the general public as the official start of a project. In reality, our team had to put in years of design, preparation and hard work before the VIPs could grab those shiny golden shovels.

So while we are well down the road toward our Campus Transformation, the ceremonial groundbreaking does give us the opportunity to do something important: express our gratitude.

Thank you to our staff, to our patients and families, and to our neighbors who live and work near our main campus. You have put up with detours, new traffic patterns and construction vehicles as we’ve prepared the site of the new hospital for construction.

Thankfully, we’ve succeeded in avoiding significant disruptions and in keeping smaller headaches to a minimum. Once we complete improvements to View Road (the street that goes behind our campus) in late-spring or early-summer, folks should experience even fewer annoyances.

Still, a construction project like this cannot be completed without some noise, some dust and some disruption.

We are grateful for your grace and your patience.

It’s all going to be worth it.
