Ribbon cutting set for January 31
Providers from 127 N Main Women’s Health Clinic, as well as the Orthopaedic Clinic and eventually, Martin St. Primary Care
From Jones Memorial Hospital,
Today is a historic day for Jones Memorial Hospital. The third phase of the $25 million transformation and modernization project nears completion as the 3rd floor medical village opens its doors to patients.
The 14,000 sq. ft. expansion is home to women’s health, family medicine/OB, pediatrics and orthopedics. This new addition was made possible through a significant NYS Transformation grant as well as a $2 million Capital Campaign drive funded largely by members of the local community. However, building the Medical Village would not have been possible without the foresight of past Jones Memorial President & CEO, William “Bill” DiBerardino, who installed elevator shafts and reinforced steel structures during the 1991 renovation, planning for a future 3rd floor as well as the vision of the previous CEO, Eva Benedict, who fought to secure grant funding and approval to get the project off the ground.
Carrie Walker, VP of Practice Management and Specialty Services states, “This new expansion is a huge step in our commitment to advancing healthcare access and continuing to provide superior care to our community.” She went on to explain, “Our providers will have state of the art resources at their disposal, direct access to the hospital and more time for patient care.”
The full project will be celebrated on January 31st with a ribbon cutting ceremony at the hospital at 3pm. Tours will be led by hospital staff and will cover the new medical village as well as the new static MRI suite and new OR units.
