Patient Entrance Closure Starting May 30

In January, The Bellevue Hospital (TBH) began several renovation projects in effort to expand customer and healthcare services.


Construction in the building includes a renovated Emergency Department (ED) lobby and registration area, the addition of a new operating suite to the Perioperative Department and upgraded sterilization area, a renovated nurses station in the Family Birthing Center, and entrance renovations.


Starting May 30, 2018, renovations will take place on the hospital's Patient Entrance (East). Renovations on this entrance are expected to take seven weeks to complete.

Renovations on this entrance will:

  • Increase the comfort of the hospital's atrium area
  • Increase the energy efficiency of the hospital
  • Descrease the "wind-tunnel" effect in the hospital's atrium area

During this time, the Patient Entrance (East) will be closed. Visitors and patients to the hospital will need to use the Main Entrance (South) or the Cardiopulmonary Entrance (East). Individuals that need to access the ED may continue to enter through the ED Patient Entrance.


Volunteers will be available to assist in directing visitors to their needed location. No hospital services will be affected during this time.


The Bellevue Hospital is continuing construction on 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 Rehabilitation Department, OB/GYN offices, and a 24-hour fitness center.
