GRHS re-opens entrance, interior spaces as renovation continues

The hospital entrance has re-opened at Glencoe Regional Health Services. Construction continues in several interior departments.

Glencoe Regional Health Services (GRHS) re-opened its hospital entrance and several interior spaces last week as part of a $5 million renovation project. Construction began in September 2016 and should be completed by November 2017. The hospital is located at 1805 Hennepin Ave. N in Glencoe.
“We’re renovating to improve our services and provide greater comfort and privacy to patients who come to the hospital for urgent care, surgical procedures, emergency care, medical imaging and office visits with specialists in orthopedics, podiatry, oncology, urology and pulmonology,” said Jon D. Braband, president and chief executive officer of GRHS. “Opening some of our new spaces last week was an important milestone in this effort.”
Renovated areas that are now open include:
• Hospital entrance with canopied drive and registration/check-in desk that is designed for enhanced patient privacy and confidentiality;
• Larger, more comfortable facilities for patients undergoing chemotherapy and other types of infusion therapy;
• In-house magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) suite with a new MRI scanner;
• Private waiting room for patients undergoing surgery and their family members;
• New endoscopy suite and surgical procedure room; and
• Clinic exam rooms and outpatient procedure rooms for urology care.
