Shenandoah Memorial Hospital to open new buiding Wednesday

The Shenandoah Valley-Herald

WOODSTOCK — Staff and administrators at Woodstock’s hospital will celebrate the completion of the facility’s latest wing on Wednesday.

Shenandoah Memorial Hospital will host a ribbon-cutting for its Emergency Department and Medical Office Building at 759 S. Main St. at 12:15 p.m. An open house and tours of the building will run from 12:45 to 2 p.m.

Hospital staff broke ground on the three-story, 47,000-square-foot extension in April 2015. Valley Health, which owns the hospital, funded all but $1.5 million of the building’s $17.9 million construction.

The Shenandoah Memorial Hospital Foundation raised the remaining amount during a fundraising drive last year.

The building’s first floor will contain 17 private treatment rooms and an ambulance offloading area.

Lisa Heishman, the hospital’s vice president of patient services, said the second and third floors will feature offices for medical practices moving into the new building, including Woodstock Internal Medicine and Shenandoah Urology.

Carol Weare, Valley Health’s public relations manager, said the new space will be larger, more private and more convenient for patients and doctors than the 12 curtained bays in the hospital’s current emergency room.

“It will just give better care and a better overall experience for EMS, patients, physicians and families,” she said.

The first floor will also contain offices for the hospital’s cardiac, obstetrics and gynocology and security departments, Weare said.
