Hospital and Nursing Home Construction Update

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.

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.
