Construction is now underway on the third floor to prepare us for the creation of a new 28-bed, all private room inpatient unit. When complete, we will double the size of our Medical/Surgical/Telemetry unit.
The patient-centric design of the new floor will create a comfortable and welcoming space for patients and their families. In addition, it will have efficient workspaces for clinical teams with the latest medical monitoring equipment to ensure the best care.
The project should be finished by April of 2019. When complete, Platte Valley Medical Center will increase its capacity from 70 private inpatient rooms to a total of 98 private inpatient rooms.
Associates and patients may feel vibrations of our heavy equipment and hear loud banging and jackhammering. Please tell your patients thank you for their patience.
The work should take place in short intervals to ensure quiet times. We will also provide comfort amenities such as ear plugs, sound machines and headphones to patients during the construction periods. You should have access to Spanish and English handouts for visitors who would like earplugs and information on the construction. If not, there should be more at the front desk or marketing.
We are excited to be able to care for more patients and meet the needs of the growing communities that we serve with this project.
