The new nurses station will feature expanded space, and additional room for caregivers across specialties.

The hospital will get a new ambulance entrance, a bariatric room, improved behavioral health spaces, and 60 new parking spaces.

Current services will not be disrupted, and the number of treatment beds available will not be affected.
