Since the Madison Hospital was built in 1952 and the Madison Lutheran Home established in 1943 numerous renovations and reconfigurations of spaces have kept pace with increasing technology and expanded services. The current project, begun in 2012. is the most ambitious with a budget of $12 million being financed by reserves and gifts and an $8 million loan through Klein Bank. Completion date for all areas is Thanksgiving.
Currently, most of the exterior construction is completed and interior spaces are in final stages with therapy and surgical areas having a target of mid-summer for completion. The south wing of the hospital was expanded so all 12 patient rooms will be in that area for greater privacy and less traffic. The east wing of rooms will accommodate cardiac rehab and outpatient services. A face lift for the registration desk is in the plans.
Here is a picture review of progress.
Photo: The former operating room will become the Central Supply Area for the hospital. All equipment and supplies are inventoried on a computer system. The hospital’s new surgical suite required an expansion of the building for 2 new operating rooms and recovery areas. More surgeries, especially orthopedic will be done locally. New equipment with the latest technology will be installed.
Photo: The north wing of the nursing home has expanded 12 feet in width allowing more spacious resident rooms and less confining hallways. A new beauty shop nearby with equipment designed for nursing home use will be well used.
Photo: An “internet café” area is a creative space for a coffee shop, family and resident lounge and computer area with a restful view of the shady trees on the grounds.
Visitors, patients, and staff are to be commended for their patience during this renovation. Working around construction is inconvenient and tests ingenuity and teamwork. Staff is very much looking forward to use of these new spaces and anticipate that the local community will be as excited as they are about the improvements.
