Renovation of GRHS entry, first floor are now complete

After 18 months of construction that affected nearly all of the first floor of the hospital at Glencoe Regional Health Services (GRHS), renovations are complete and all areas are now open.
“We began the renovation project in September of 2016 to improve services and provide greater comfort and privacy to our patients,” said Jon D. Braband, president and chief executive officer (CEO) of GRHS. “We’re very proud of the enhanced spaces in our emergency room, urgent care, medical imaging, orthopedics, podiatry, oncology, surgery, urology and pulmonology departments.”
The staff at the hospital entrance is still just as welcoming, but the check-in spaces have been enhanced. The new hospital registration and check-in desk has been designed for greater patient privacy and confidentiality, and renovations in the hospital waiting areas have made the space larger and more open.
Beyond the new hospital entrance and waiting rooms, the emergency room (ER) and urgent care spaces were reorganized for more efficient patient care. Additionally, the ER now includes direct access to the medical laboratory for lab staff to quickly respond to test requests.
