Hospital construction project underway

Wayne County Hospital’s modernization and renovation project moves forward with construction underway later this month.  Contractor trailers arrive and the work-site will be established beginning Monday, April 21st.

The primary staging area for all the work trailers will be the hospital’s west parking lot.  The majority of this parking area will be closed off to the general public while the hospital is under construction.  There will be limited public parking available in this area.

For your convenience, patients and visitors are asked to use the east parking lot when possible, and access the hospital through the Amy Robertson Specialty Clinic entrance.  Alternate parking for WCH personnel has been designated at the north Walden Park parking area.  As the project progresses, the main hospital entrance on the west side will be inaccessible during some periods of the construction project.

Public safety is a major concern during this time and we ask everyone to be mindful of the construction areas during our building project. Thank you for patience and cooperation as we undergo our renovation.
