A nearly nine million dollar renovation project is complete at Mid-Hudson Regional Hospital in Poughkeepsie and a ribbon-cutting was held today. Dozens of hospital staff members and community officials gathered in the Cooke Building today for a tour of the newly redone medical-surgical unit.
Westchester Medical Center Health Network President and CEO Michael Israel says the focus of the new space is to offer more patient-centered care and a more advanced and efficient space for the hospital staff.
The unit now includes single-bed inpatient rooms that have a private bathroom, a modern headwall system and a state-of-the –art bed. The rooms are “outfitted with a full suite of leading-edge medical and support equipment.”
CEO Israel says the completion of the current renovation project is really the first step in the remake of the entire six floors of the Cooke Building. He says going forward they will renovate one floor at a time until the entire building meets the most advanced hospital standards.
