Northern Dutchess Hospital, Rhinebeck, N.Y., has announced it will construct a new 81,000-square-foot medical pavilion. The $47 million facility will feature six operating rooms, 40 private patient rooms and medical offices.
In constructing this 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, Denise George, RN, BSN, MPA, the hospital president, said in a news release.
The new private room med/surg unit is designed so 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 ORs allows for more complex surgical procedures and specialized equipment required for sophisticated surgeries, according to the release.
During construction, all hospital services will remain open as usual, according to the release. Installation of temporary fencing began the week of March 17 at the old main entrance of the hospital.
