Flagler Hospital's main lobby will undergo a full renovation, beginning Monday, July 22, 2013. The renovation, anticipated to last three to four months, is designed to improve climate control and enhance access for patient drop off and pick up, while also creating a more serene entry into the hospital setting.
"We are committed to ensuring all of our patients, families and visitors have the best possible experience while at our hospital," commented President and CEO Joe Gordy. "As part of this, we have made many enhancements to our facility over the past year to provide more comfortable and home-like surroundings, which are proven to reduce anxiety and facilitate healing. This lobby project is another way we can help patients and their families feel at ease during their time with us."
To accommodate the construction, certain hospital services will be moved to alternate locations for several months.
- All on-site outpatient lab draws will be conducted in the Flagler Hospital Outpatient Surgery Center. Any patients needing blood work done at the hospital can enter the hospital through the Outpatient Surgery Center entrance located on the southeast end of the hospital campus.
