New Mendota Community Hospital to open ER Wednesday

Posted by wlpo on December 6, 2011

Medical equipment, computers, and even the in-patients of Mendota Community Hospital are being moved from the old building into the new one.  After three years of planning and building, the new hospital off of Route 34 opens Wednesday.

Lynn Klein is the hospital’s CEO.  She says the last couple of days have brought a flurry of activity.

The new ER opens at 6am Wednesday .  At that time, the old ER will close.  Klein says in-patients at the old building will have breakfast before being taken to the new building.  They plan to be able to perform surgeries Wednesday afternoon or Thursday.  Hospital phone numbers haven’t changed.

The old hospital will be demolished.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
