Kenmore Mercy Hospital has started construction on a new Outpatient Entrance located behind the hospital. The $850,000 project is part of the hospital’s long-term plan to make the facility more convenient and accessible to patients and their families. The Outpatient Entrance is expected to be completed in January 2009.
“With the growth in services that Kenmore Mercy has experienced over the last few years and the limited parking available in front of the hospital, the new entrance will be a more convenient entry point for the hundreds of patients and visitors who come to the hospital each day, especially the elderly and those requiring special assistance,” said Mary Hoffman, President & CEO of Kenmore Mercy Hospital.
Designed by Kideney Architects, the new entrance features a two-story glass exterior, spacious lobby and covered drop-off lane. It will be located at the southwest corner of the hospital, adjacent to the back parking lot behind the hospital, allowing patients and visitors to enter the hospital directly on the first floor.
“This is an exciting time for our hospital as we continue to make improvements to better meet the needs of our patients and their families,” Hoffman continued. “We are looking forward to entering the New Year with a bright, new entrance to Kenmore Mercy Hospital.”
