Morris Hospital is hosting a community open house on Sunday, Jan. 12, 2020, from 2:00 p.m. -4:00 p.m., to celebrate the completion of the first phase of its major modernization project.

Guests will get to go behind-the-scenes of the new emergency department before the anticipated February opening for patient care. The new emergency department features all private exam rooms, a separate, low acuity area to expedite treatment of patients with less serious illness and injuries, and enhanced trauma and critical care treatment areas.

Tours of the new infusion therapy center, new women’s imaging center, new main lobby and new outpatient lab will also be provided, along with a demonstration of the new self-registration technology that’s coming to Morris Hospital in early 2020.

Renovations began in the spring of 2019 as part of a $33.5 million, multi-phase modernization project that is designed to enhance patient and visitor comfort, experience and privacy while optimizing use of space for patient care services. This is the first major renovation on the hospital main campus since 2006. Additional phases of the modernization project will result in a new cardiac diagnostic testing area and renovated diagnostic imaging department.
