WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Northern Dutchess Hospital has announced that it will construct a new 81,000 square-foot medical pavilion that features six operating rooms, 40 private patient rooms and medical offices.
During the construction, all hospital services will remain open as usual. Installation of temporary fencing will begin the week of Monday, March 17 at the old main entrance of the hospital to provide a safe environment for patients and visitors. Traffic patterns will change around Monday, April 21.
The Montgomery Street entrance by the Northern Dutchess Hospital Thrift Shop will be closed during construction. All other entrances will be open to provide convenient access. Staff will be available to direct traffic and answer questions.
“In constructing this $47 million Medical Pavilion, Northern Dutchess Hospital once again provides something invaluable to patients in the area: access to a state-of-the-art facility, high-tech surgical services and the highest levels of patient care offered,” said Denise George, president, Northern Dutchess Hospital.
The all-private room medical/surgical unit is designed so that nurses have an unobstructed view into patient rooms. All rooms will be equipped with telemetry monitors to track cardiac activity and other vital signs.
The addition of new operating rooms brings larger, technically superior space designed for optimum use. It allows for more complex surgical procedures and specialized equipment required for today’s sophisticated surgeries.
Free valet parking has been added at the main entrance. The valet service will be available Monday through Friday during peak operating hours.
