The Bellevue Hospital (TBH) recently began several renovation projects in effort to expand customer and healthcare services.
Starting January 8, 2018, renovations will begin taking place on the hospital's Emergency Department patient entrance, and the east-facing Cardiac Rehab/Cardiopulmonary entrance. Renovations on the two entrances are expected to take seven-to-eight weeks to complete. During this time, both the Emergency Department patient entrance, and the Cardiac Rehab/Cardiopulmonary entrance will be closed. Visitors and patients to the hospital's Emergency Department are asked to use the Emergency Department/Ambulance entrance (door D) on the west side of the building. Cardiac Rehab patients are asked to use the hospital's east-facing main patient entrance (door A). No hospital patient and/or emergency services will be affected during this time.
During the Emergency Department entrance renovation, the Occupational Health Department will be temporarily moved to the Specialty Clinic area located inside the hospital. Patients and visitors needing Occupational Health services are asked to enter the hospital through the east-facing main patient entrance (door A). Volunteers will be available to assist in directing visitors to their needed location.
*Please note, if you have a scheduled appointment before 5:30 p.m. Monday - Friday, please use the east main patient entrance (door A). If you have an appointment scheduled after 5:30 p.m. Monday - Friday, OR on the weekend, please use the ED ambulance entrance on the west side of the building (door D).
On the north side of the main hospital facility, construction is taking place to add a new operating suite to the Perioperative Department and to upgrade the current sterilization area. The addition will allow more surgeries to be scheduled at the hospital and will also include a conference room.
Along with the construction taking place on the hospital's main campus, the hospital has also acquired the building across U.S. Route 20 that formerly housed Prestige Portraits. Expanding the hospital's campus to the 102 Commerce Park Drive location will meet a growing need to provide more space for patients and parking. Once complete, the office building will house The Bellevue Hospital's Vein & Body Center, the Rehabilitation Department and OB/GYN offices.
The projects are expected to be complete by June, 2018.
Thank you for your patience while we strive to provide expanded healthcare services to our community members.
