The final 28 foot steel beam of our new Patient Tower will be raised and welded into place during a "Top Off " Ceremony on Thursday, April 22, 2010 at 3 pm at the Williamsport Regional Medical Center. The beam has been on display at the Williamsport Regional Medical Center for the past few weeks to allow employees service partners, volunteers, physicians and members of the community to sign it before it is raised this Thursday. This historical event celebrates the largest construction project in the region.
Named Project 2012, Susquehanna Health launched a major initiative in 2006 to redevelop its current campus locations with new and updated facilities that will create the kind of “regional destination center” for health services. The objective of the entire redevelopment project, called Project 2012 is consistent with Susquehanna Health’s mission, vision and values and affords contemporary “best practice” medical care in a safe, efficient, flexible and aesthetically pleasing environment that is conducive to health and healing. Major enhancements are taking place on all three campuses of Susquehanna Health - Divine Providence Hospital, Muncy Valley Hospital and Williamsport Regional Medical Center. Some of the highlights include: an expanded and renovated Cancer Center at Divine Providence Hospital and private patient rooms at Muncy Valley Hospital and Williamsport Regional Medical Center. The flagship inpatient hospital, Williamsport Regional Medical Center, will have a new main entrance and is under construction with a new patient tower that allows for expansion of patient care areas such as the Operating Rooms, Emergency Department, Imaging, Lab and Heart and Vascular Services.
