More Eidsvold Hospital works about to commence
Upgrades to Eidsvold Multipurpose Health Service are about to reach its next stage with work on relocating the administration area to the entrance of the hospital commencing on Wednesday.
As a result of the work, access to the facility will change and all patients, visitors, community members and services are asked to follow the signage.
Eidsvold MPHS director of nursing Nicci Maher said the work to the entrance area followed the completion of upgrades to the pharmacy, therapy room, several patient/resident rooms and clinical store room.
“It’s fantastic to have these upgrades completed as it makes our hospital a safer and more functional health facility for staff, patients and visitors,” Ms Maher said.
“One of our urgent needs was to make the entry of Eidsvold MPHS safer and more welcoming, which is why we’re upgrading the area and moving the administration to the entrance.
“This will require some significant work, so we will be altering the entrance and exit points of the building for the safety of our community, patients, visitors and services.”
There will still be access for people with mobility concerns via a ramp, while the service entry area will be used as a disability access point.
Parking will be unaffected by the work and there will be clear signage for visitors to follow when they arrive on grounds.
“When people arrive at the hospital they will need to follow the signage and present to the nurse’s station for further direction,” Ms Maher said.
“Understandably it will be an inconvenience as this important work is completed, but the end result will be well worth it and we ask for patience from our patients, visitors and the community.”
The community will be notified of any further updates to the MPHS upgrades as they occur.
