(ATLANTIC) The Cass County Memorial Hospital Inpatient Services will move into the new addition on Friday. Inpatient Services include the medical/surgical, intensive care and obstetrics units. The move will take place throughout the day, with patients being moved in shifts.
“We will begin moving after our patients have had breakfast and morning medications,” explained Diann McLaren, IP Services Director. “We will then move them in small groups as we get rooms fully equipped in the new area. It will be an exciting day, and our goal is to move our patients safely, with the least inconvenience to them as possible.”
Visitors coming to see patients in the new Inpatient Services are encouraged to enter from the North or East entrances, and use the elevator at the end of the Atrium, next to the newly relocated CCMH Auxiliary Gift Shop. Effective Friday, the North Entrance (in front of the large staircase) will open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily to accommodate visitors in the evening. The West Entrance along 10th Street, formerly used to visit inpatients, will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. The East Entrance is also open 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., but there is an intercom to allow access 24 hours a day.
