Parkview Health officials are spending about $3.5 million to upgrade the health system’s Randallia hospital, creating a center that offers a continuum of patient care.
Hospital officials today led local media on a tour of the renovated facility, pointing out details from about $450,000 in upgrades made since the beginning of the year.
Sue Ehinger, president of Parkview Hospital Randallia and Parkview Regional Medical Center, estimated that 25 percent to 30 percent of the 1 million-square-foot building has been updated so far.
Another $3 million in renovations are planned, with most scheduled for completion before the end of this year, she said.
The hospital now has 150 beds in patient rooms that are larger and quieter than before. Plans include adding more beds in the acute care and continuing care areas.
