This is a time of significant change at APD as we undertake the most transformative physical plant improvement project at the Hospital in twenty years. The changes to our facility will advance our mission of providing patient centered care and continually improving the quality of healthcare services in our community.
Estimated to cost $17.3 million, this historic project to renovate and expand the main hospital building will improve the patient experience. Sixty percent of the current hospital will be impacted, including 42,105 square feet of renovation and 11,670 square feet of new space that will be added.
Phase One: The first phase of the project will include renovating the Med-Surg West wing to create our new Medical-Surgical Unit.
The new Donald Faulkner Dickey Medical-Surgical Wing will include:
- 15 private patient rooms,
- two semi-private patient rooms,
- palliative care room with adjoining family area,
- four patient observation areas
- inpatient rehabilitation gym
offices, nutrition, environmental services,
a staff break room and meeting rooms.
In the lower level of the building there will be changes including a partial reconfiguration of our Materials Management department and new mechanical, electrical and plumbing infrastructure.
Phase Two: The second stage will include a new radiology unit, upgraded pre- and post-operative areas, a new registration area, a new entrance and safe and efficient patient parking that will greatly improve access to the facility.
