New Community Hospital East
Community Health Network is investing $175 million in its East Region by building a brand new hospital that will be completed in 2020. The new hospital tower will include an all new emergency department, medical imaging, surgery, delivery and inpatient rooms. Patients and visitors will not be disrupted during construction.
Construction will occur in several phases, all designed to not disrupt patient care. The modernized campus will be positioned to handle ever-changing trends in today's healthcare environment.
New Inpatient Adult Psychiatric Unit
In July 2019, Community expanded its capacity to treat drug addiction with a new inpatient adult psychiatric unit on the east side. A ribbon cutting marked the opening of the new 13-bed unit located on the 5th floor of the state’s Neuro-Diagnostic Institute before patients began using the space.
New Patient Tower Opens
On February 2, 2019, the new patient tower opened at Community Hospital East. It includes an all new emergency department, medical imaging, surgery, delivery, and inpatient rooms along with innovative bedside technology and enhanced privacy features. The public was invited to tour the new space at an open house.
Emergency Department Entrance Relocation
On February 12, 2019 the Community Hospital East Emergency Department entrance relocated to the new ED space located on the west side of the building. Parking may be accessed from 16th Street. The Emergency Department entrance is open 24/7. All campus visitors should use ED entrance after 7 p.m. See map for details.
Bistro East: Bringing Local Foods to Diners
The new Community East now includes a cafeteria of the future. Bistro East opened in August, 2018.
