Total construction time for the project will take about two years. The end result will be 21 full-service Emergency rooms, two large operating rooms with ceiling-mounted technology, a room for surgical procedures that do not require a full operating room and 14 private Same Day Surgery rooms.
Dorman crews started the project last summer with the helipad move, as well as moving the north roadway to accommodate the new helipad.
The next phases include the construction of the new Surgery department, extended out to the front of the hospital, creating a new façade for the facility. Expansion of the Emergency Department will take place once the Surgery expansion is complete, making space for the new emergency rooms. The project will also include 14 private Same Day Surgery patient waiting rooms.
The project will add 15,000 square feet of building space to the hospital, along with a renovation of 10,000 square feet of the existing hospital.
Cost for the total project is estimated at $11 million. The Lebanon Community Hospital Foundation is embarking on a capital campaign to raise $2 million of that total cost.
