Rooms in the pediatrics unit and the medical surgical unit are getting "updated finishes," said Tammy Smith, a hospital spokeswoman. The hospital also is making some minor changes to better accommodate the electronic medical records system in use for the last few years, Smith said.
The hospital wants to stay current, said John Sackett, chief executive, pointing out that the current infrastructure is 23 years old.
"We want patients to feel like they're coming to a modern, up-to-date facility," Sackett said.
The hospital dining room, kitchen and serving areas also are being expanded and getting upgraded equipment, Smith said.
